I know c++ and c# well.But never develop a big project that have so many components and will be extended for long time.

I want to make a program that can be develop by different users.Some of them prefare native app(com dlls, c++ dlls , etc) for components, some of them prefare managed components(.NET base components).

1-)Especially i think that i want to design my UI in c# and then other parts that my algorithms are working with c++ or c# codes.My UI or my application will able to interact between both .net dll or com dlls( i mean native).

I want to learn all your opinions and advices about such a program.I don't want to make mistake.

2-)I mean is this possible?C# host and native dlls.How can i do this?I mean i want to see my roadmap.İn which point must i be careful?
3-)Also if i design my programs UI or shell with .net code(like c#) , in future i can utilize .net plugins but if my shell code or UI in c++ i can not write any plugin with managed code.Is this right?

Also if there are any sample applications like that can you send their links.I really see how must i design my c# exe so it can be interact with both .net and com plugins that develop by differnet users.

Thanks.
I am looking for your answers.

The NET framework allows for hosting of COM object by just adding a reference to the COM library VS will create a wrapper NET assembly for the Library. The threading model could be an issue so a little reading should be applied here. There are a number of plugin NET frameworks about that will allow for concurrent development of NET applications, here are 2 that come to mind.
