EXE Upgrade to 2016

From NAV2009 to NAV2016 you need the full upgrade process

but what about:
From NAV2013 to NAV2016
From NAV2013R2 to NAV2016
From NAV2015 to NAV2016

Can we leave the C/AL code intact and only do a EXE upgrade?

    No I don't think so. With NAV 2016 There are some more code design changes like -

    > Events & Subscriptions.
    > No More Approvals.
    > WorkFlow.

    I would still suggest to do a full data migration & also the code upgrade too.

    ** Data Upgrade will only take care of approvals (as per my understanding) Rest will remain as it is.
    ** But code merge and upgrade is mandatory.

    Thanks & Regards,

    I would not recommend this. There are a lot of new object features etc and the steps to move from 2013 upwards to 2016 are not as bad as previous upgrades. I would personally be surprised if you did only a technical upgrade that the solution continued to work. There are some pretty big C/AL changes (event publisher and subscriber for example) in 2016 that I would think need a proper upgrade. Bite the bullet and do it properly I think... :)
