We as a company are reliant on several pieces of software that were written in Delphi now the only machine that can update them is hidden under a desk that only a select few know of. At least one of the Gurus who wrote the software has since died, several have left the firm, there is one bit that is crucial that will only run XP Service Pack 2 and nothing higher. A bit of Googling and there is a tool to do it Delphi to C# Conversion - Ispirer has anyone tried it know of another... I trying to avoid problems...
Speaking to the Delphi guru, it uses all sorts of third party interface to make life easier and non-convertible. well it's better than nothing...
Might be cheaper to build it anew, then to figure out why there's all this weird legacy-code.
The converter would choke on my "uDebug" unit, because the debug-files in .NET look a bit different from the map-files in Delphi. As long as the code is straightforward, conversions "may" work, but anything out of the ordinary will fail.

If you can't read my code, try converting it here[^]

It's funny because everyone one of us who've experienced code conversion are all just like, "Well, yes, but I wish I didn't have that experience." It's just old wounds to think about now. Nothing else.
