*Set environment variables — For more information on setting environment variables (including SQL), see Working in the OpenEdge Environment on UNIX
*Create customized executables — To create customized product executables, see the information on building ABL executables in OpenEdge Deployment: Managing ABL Applications; creating executables might be required for certain product configurations.
*Convert existing databases — After your OpenEdge installation is complete, you must convert your Progress databases to OpenEdge using the PROUTIL CONV910 utility. Note that if you have a Progress Version 8 database, you must convert it to a Version 9 database first. For instructions on converting your Progress databases to OpenEdge, see the chapter on administration utilities in OpenEdge Data Management: Database Administration.
