Migrating Your Applications
Visual Studio .NET 2003
One benefit of Managed Extensions for C++ is that you can use your existing C++ code and rewrite older components or create new components that target the .NET Framework and the common language runtime.
Note It is not necessary to convert all your existing C++ code to use Managed Extensions syntax. You will need to use Managed Extensions syntax to expose C++ entities to other .NET applications, however. For example, if you want to port an existing C++ class library to .NET, you need to either modify existing classes to support Managed Extensions or create new classes that serve as interfaces to the existing classes.
