Mark, I'm sorry. I've just read the initial post from Paras Jain and  
he is using both Delphi 5 and Delphi 7, and it is a real problem. I don't 
know if there is a problem to abandon Delphi 5 and compile everything with 
Delphi 7. I have experience porting Delphi 4 code to Delphi 6 and we had no
problem in doing it. We converted exact 9132 files (including more than 3000 
dfm files) in a very short period of time using 9 people working part time
on the conversion project. Dispite the conversion being easy, there was
not just client/server forms, but also Windows Services, many classes 
containing very complex business rules and critical mission systems (I work 
for a brazilian bank and everything is done in Delphi).

The most difficult part was COM+ components conversion, but even if he has
a lot of COM+ components, I strongly recomend doing it so it will be possible 
to do parallel work, dfm file merge operations (which is impossible with binary 
forms), among other things. And, of course, configuration management team 
will owe him.
