Even though I've never used .NET I'm gonna try. Try this:

std::string sSomeString;
System::string sSomeSlightlyDifferentString = System::String( sSomeString.c_str() );

If it doesn't work we need the help of someone using .NET.

I'm using it like you said but now i getting the error :
System::String can only create a __gc on the __gc_heap


My Code :

System::String* unencodedString = System::String(text.c_str()); --> Error
Byte encodedBytes[] = ascii->GetBytes(unencodedString);
IEnumerator* myEnum = encodedBytes->GetEnumerator();
while (myEnum->MoveNext())
Byte b = *__try_cast<Byte __gc*>(myEnum->Current);

// Decode bytes back to String*.
System::String* decodedString = ascii->GetString(encodedBytes);

If you're using managed C++ (which i suspect if you're using std::string) you will need to declare the System::String as __gc
