I am sure this question were asked earlier on... Search for "how to use a C# file in C++" in Google, it returns tons of information that you can choose from.

No, you don't have to reinstall. You can just add that to your existing installation.

You need to enable the C++/CLI on your MFC project. Right-click on your MFC project in the solution explorer and click "Properties" at the bottom of the popup menu. On the property page, click on the advanced option on the left and select C++/CLI on the right bottom:

Then add your new C++/CLI class by right-clicking on the project and choose Add > Add New Item > C++ Class. Make sure "Managed" option is selected.

Once you have created your C++/CLI class, access your C# class from there.

Do you have an easy example that Can I see?

Read my article Calling all station with example code which demonstrates the use of that technology.

Best is also to read the documentation of your c# library. An easy solution maybe that you write also some C# code to use the library and only provide the result to C++. Maybe a file or graphic.
