Calling a 16 bit DLL from Delphi 2

I'm trying to call a 16 bit DLL from my Delphi 2 application.  I'm getting the program to compile ok but when I run it I get a "Debugger kernel error. Error code: 1."I've also tried to call functions in the mmsystem dll but I get the same error.  Any ideas anyone ?

You can't call a 16-bit DLL from a 32-bit app.  If you can, compile the dll in 32-bits (sounds like you might not be able to do that).  The other alternative is to use 'generic' thunking.

What the heck is Generic Thunking ?  Guess I'll compile it as an exe and pass things over via the command line then.  Not as tidy as a DLL but I need to call a Delphi 16 bit app from Delphi 32.
