Porting Delphi Applications to Delphi for NET

If you have existing applications written using an earlier version of Delphi, you might want to port them to .NET. In most cases, this will likely be easier than writing the applications over from scratch. Because Delphi 8 for .NET takes advantage of significant structural elements in the .NET Framework, you will need to perform some manual porting tasks to make your applications run. For example, the .NET Framework does not support pointers in safe code. So, any instances of pChar or pointer variables will need to be revised to one of the .NET types. Many Delphi objects have been already updated to accommodate these type restrictions, but your code may include references to pointers or unsupported types. For more information, refer to the Porting information in this Help system, and to the Language Guide.
