How do I mix C# and C++ code in a single assembly?


If your C++ code is not compiled with /clr:safe (i.e. it is compiled with /clr or /clr:pure), do the following:

1) compile your C++ code into .obj files

2) compile your C# code into a .netmodule, using /AddModule to reference the C++ .obj files

3) link the C# netmodule directly with the C++ object files using the C++ linker to create a mixed language assembly 


If your C++ code is compiled with /clr:safe, build your C++ code as a .netmodule.  You can use it just like you would use a .netmodule from any other language.
