Less drastic. The Microsoft C++ compiler can produce managed code. The
porting work would boil down to adding a bunch of macros for a few
compiler-specific keywords.
And managed code means code managed by the garbage-collecting .NET runtime
as opposed to good old native machine code.

It has a plug-in architecture (ISAPI) that in principle could plugin DeltaV.
No idea how difficult that would be vs. writing your own server in C# (web
classes are pretty comprehensive)

into VS.
