Delphi 2 to Delphi 3 Migration

I am attempting to take a Delphi 2 project to Delphi 3 and keep getting "Incompatable type Error 'String and Integer."
I get one of these errors for each unit in the project. It feferences the Classes.pas file. I am recompiling with the dpr, pas, dfm and res files only. Any Ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This error maybe ocuured in line like

   raise SomeException.Create(LoadStr(SInsertLineError));

This will no longer work. My suggested change is to use


   raise SomeException.Create(
         {$IFNDEF VER100}LoadStr{$ENDIF}
                              (SInsertLineError));


which conditional on being compiled with Delphi 3 leaves out the "LoadStr"

In general all code making use of the constants declared in
CONSTS(.PAS/.DCU) will cause a compiler error: "Incompatible types:
'Integer' and 'String'"
