    I guess completly rewritting it is your way, since conversation is barely possible and more time consuming.
    I am not offering technical guidiance via email or IM

    I am ready to rewrite the app and doing so for the UI conversion I found a tool RC Convertor from www.dudelabs.com but I cannot find any other tool which can convert my business logic code from C++ to C#.Will keep you posted with my progress.

    There are several languages within the .NET framework that can be combined into a mixed solution, and C++ is one of them. So you can do the porting in steps. First everything to C++ .NET. Then selected parts, or everything, or just new parts, to C#.

    Well...this would be one step too much....if you already have converted it to managed C++ then why would you bother to convert it further to C#?

    Well...as already indicated, I haven't heard of such a tool and quite honest I wouldn't be sure whether anybody would program such a thing since it would mean to write a huge parser with deep knowledge about both languages and their constructs.
