Are forms created in ArcPad Studio 10 compatible with previous editions of ArcPad?

I have lots of units loaded with ArcPad 7 and no way to get custom forms on them (I lack ArcPad Studio or Application Builder 7). I'm trying to get basic things like pull down menus and checkboxes.

Although, I don't have a way to test it, the code and such is the same. There may be a few upgrades in certain parts of the code that may not display the same or wrong (Just like anything attempting to be backwards compatible that far off), but I can't foresee a a problem.

You may need to edit the form directly (*.apl file) and maybe even manually transfer the file, but yes it should.
