Looks like some of the properties in your old component have been renamed or removed.

You will need to rename them in your .dfm file if that is the case, using an text editor.

Some properties from older versions of delphi will failed on load because of unicode strings.
If you have instaled mfca component in newer delphi put it on form and look for caption property. If it is missing, then you can click ignore easily and all should be fine. If old mfca component is inherited from twincontrol then component have caption property, but newer is maybe inherited from tobject then you have this situation. Or, as ewangoya suggest open dfm file in text edit and make some changes (remove Caption property and switch back to dfm).

you'll have to install all the old components in the newer version first
some tweaks will be required on the old components

i hope you have the source for the old components
compiling the old source package in the new version will give errors to what isn't working
