    Migrating from MFC to .NET with C++.NET

    Hi, i'm a C++ programmer and i wrote a lot of MFC and plain C Win32 API code.
    I'd like to migrate to .NET, but being able to re-use the legacy code i've already written, without having to rewrite it entirely in a new language.

    So, i think my migration process could be this, is it convenient or even possible?

    1) I learn C#

    2) I learn C++.NET

    3) If i have to write a .NET class which does not use my old MFC+Win32 code, i'll use C#

    4) If i have to use the old code, i'll use C++.NET and i'll cut-and-paste there the old MFC code (which is compatible, i hope)

    The point 4 is the only reason i would learn C++.NET, but is that possible?
