With the move to the .NET Framework, a number of language issues have come into play when it comes to porting Delphi 7 applications to Delphi 8 for .NET. The .NET Framework, for instance, considers pointers to be unsafe and so does not consider applications that use pointers to fall into the category of managed code. In order to be compliant with the framework, you will need to make adjustments to your applications to avoid or circumvent the use of pointers, the pChar type, and other language-specific elements.
