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?

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'"
