Our current perforce is running version P4D/NTX64/2016.1/1387479 and we have a planned outage this weekend. I'd like to get the admin tool (via p4vinst64.exe) installed during this time and the closest two versions I can find on their FTP is 2015.2 and 2017.1. I'm guessing the 2015.2 is safer to install as the gap in versions can be due to changes in the installer and there simply hasn't been between these versions? Can anyone confirm this or is there a 2016.1 version of p4vinst64.exe somewhere out in the wild I should use?

IIRC there was a gap in P4V releases due to a Qt upgrade that was more painful than usual.  Generally speaking, newer clients should be compatible with older servers, at least within a few releases.
