    Use a .net library in a VisualC++ enviroment

    Could we use a .NET enviroment library in a C++ program?

    Is there an easy way to do this?

    We have a c++ application with a lot of lines, an it would be very large translate all from c++ to c#. WeŽll contiue using Visual C++, but sometimes is usefully
    implement a .NET library or add it to our program.

    To use .net with c++ there is c++/cli. See for more info. For questions re c++/cli, there is the c++/cli forum here
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    You can't call .net directly from a native C++ app. What you can do is mark a .net assembly that you create as a COM assembly and use COM to call it from your native C++.
