In general, yes. You will have to change the declaration of objects to the Delphi object declaration style.
Also, watch for pascal code and inline assembler stuff that does direct port/hardware access (will not run on NT).
Also code that relies on the memory structure of variables must be modified. E.g. Integer in TP6 is 16 bit long, in D2 it is 32 bit long, so you have to declare it as ShortInt.
Direct memory access differs, because TP6 is 16 bit. 16 bit code uses offset, 32 bit code linear memory pointers.
There is a seperate section for 16/32 bit code ports in the D2 online documentation.
