We have a Win23 client-server app.  We are replacing the client with .NET.  We have some Win32 resource DLLs (mostly message/string DLLs) that are used by both the server and the client.  What to do?

I think the answer is to convert our current DLLs or their source .mc files to .NET .resx files.  Is there a tool for doing this?

If their is a way to use our Win32 resource DLLs directly from C#, that would be good too.  However, we will be globalizing/localizing the product, and I doubt the .NET support for that will work with Win32 DLLs.
