I have the same problem.
It's not the right answer but I just add the pas file to my project and I can compile.

.DCU files for Delphi 5 will not work for Delphi 6 because they are not binary compatible.  Each version of Delphi changes it's .DCU format slightly to be able to handle it's new features.

If you don't have the .pas files to recompile in Delphi 6, you need to purchase the Delphi 6 .dcu files from the vendor.

Thanks

I'm sorry to hear I wasted my time.  Sometimes the correct answer may just be "you can't".  Please remember that.

Ya, I know.  But I think he'll get less answers from the group.  At least from me....  :)
