The first time you open an IS5 project in IS6 you will be prompted if you wish to convert the project. If you do, IS attempts to migrate. Converted projects will no longer load in IS 5 after migration.
The migration process is not perfect, and some minor problems might arise, especially if your project is very large. Those problems typically involve minor rewriting of your code. This can be done in IS6, so the migration process needs to be done only once. It is of course always a good idea to backup your project before executing the conversion.
Further, as you might know, IS 6 is event-based, but it still supports complete scripting. The migrated project won't be event-driven but scripted.
The on-line help of IS6 provides more information for (automatic) migration.

Consult the IS6 Event Maps (to be found on here on installsite) to find out which events to override.
