Hi,

You can't use compiled unit code (.TPU) from anolder or a newer version in another. this means, TP 6 - Units won't work in TP/BP7
or any other version. in any way, you need its source codes to re-compile it and make it compatible with the new version. If you don't have the source, sorry, there's nothing you can do, becouse borland never released informations about the file structures of TPU - Files, so nobody can write a program or utility to convert old TPUs to newer format. Only the compiler can do it, with the original source codes of the unit.
