The main issue would be conversion of all of the headers to be
compatible with MSVC, making sure that you got all the calling conventions
correct. All of the API's for calling back into Acrobat assume that you
are using a C/C++ compiler with a compatible ABI to MSVC. If Delphi can be
set up to build such an animal, then you're in luck...
