Porting COM to C# lib to use from XLS

Hi,

My current architecture is as follows -
I am using COM server from XLS, using XLA facilities. My business logic
resides in COM libraries and XLS as front end.
I would like to port this architecture to Dot net environment (C#). So
what steps/architecture I should follow?

To my knowledge you cannot port this code directly although some of the
syntax is similar of course to vb.net. You can access the COM libraries by
using something called Interop Services. This is quite simple in .NET you
just need to add a reference to the COM DLL and then use the namespace in
your applications.

If you are from a Visual Basic background and want to learn C# you are going
to have to master not only the C like sytntax which is completely different,
you will also have to learn Visual Studio and the .NET Framework. This is no
small undertaking.

What is the scope of the project in terms of size and your current skill
level ?
