C++ service to use C# dll's?

I have a windows service written using Visual Studio 6.0 in C++ (heavy
useage on MFC).
At the moment, the service relies on com dll's written in C++ and VB
(COM).
I want to ditch these dll's and COM and start using C# dll's instead.

Can anyone suggest an upgrade path for me?

Important points:

1. Service must have very minimal changes. Its a robust and excellent
piece of software (not written by me lol).

2. NO useage of COM at all :)

I opened my service under the VS 8.0 IDE and got the service to compile,
but it appears to be unmanaged.

Any help / suggestions are appreciated.

Regardss,

Steven
