in order to use your existing C++ code in C#, you have to convert it to managed code, correct? Is this difficult, or relatively trivial. I was an article on MSDN about how to do this, but I can''d find it. If anyone knows where it is, or has any other general tips for it, I''d greatly appreciate it.

You don''t have to convert any of the existing unmanaged C++ code per se. All C++ code will compile to managed code. However, to expose it to other managed clients, such as C#, you need to provide a managed interface. This means wrapping your unmanaged classes in managed counterparts.

The VC++ docs have some stuff on this: ms-help://MS.MSDNVS/vcmex/html/vcconAddingMCToExistingApplication.htm and ms-help://MS.MSDNVS/vcmxspec/html/vcmg_overview.htm
