I think that 16 bit DOS/Windows code can't be used from Pi3's CGI handler.
I suppose (but hasn't a look at the related parts of the source code) that
WIN32 process/thread mechanisms are used to launch CGI applications and to
wait for them.
Your code works principal - tried it with TP 6.0. I did also build a Delphi
3 binary from it (made some minor modifications to use environment funcions
of the Win32 API) and it works too - now also from the server.

Look for a 32 Bit Windows Compiler.
