Typecasting TBytes to Integer in Delphi XE8

In Delphi 7, I used to be able to do following:

  TA4: array[1..4] of char;

  a4: TA4;
  n1: Integer;

  a4[1] := #1;
  a4[2] := #2;
  a4[3] := #1;
  a4[4] := #2;

  n1 := Integer(a4);

Now - with XE8 - it no longer works and it produces a message "E2089 Invalid Typecast"

Is there another way of doing it? The data is now coming from Bytes1: TBytes

Thank you.
