Lately I have one question in my mind about Enterprise Guide 5.1, custom tasks and Software upgrade.
So i have 50's custom tasks working in SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1 and i want to upgrade SAS Enterprise Guide to 7.2. So with this upgrade can my custom tasks stop working? Or doesn't have any impact?
I using Framework 4 .NET in my custom tasks.
Thanks for your help.

I would expect that you would still need to recompile your custom tasks on the new version of .NET Framework.
According to "System Requirements--SAS® Enterprise Guide 7.1" ( http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/en/ikeguidesr/68009/PDF/default/sreq.pdf ):
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 (prior to version 7.13)
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 (version 7.13 and later)

Not to contradict my friend @JuanS_OCS, but your tasks should work without modification or recompiling, as long as they adhere to the published APIs and code libraries (SAS.Shared.Addins.dll and SAS.Tasks.Toolkit.dll).
