Try looking at these...

"XML Documentation (Visual C++)

In Visual C++, you can add comments to your source code that will be processed to an .xml file. This file can then be the input to a process that creates documentation for the classes in your code. An .xml file can also be used to support IntelliSense on your component.

XML documentation can be used regardless of whether you compile with or without /clr."

I guess that your question behind is: "Should I choose Doxygen or is there anything better?". This may be another "religious" issue. Still, I personally prefer Doxygen (but I may be biased as I am involved in the project).

Have a look at the list of projects that also uses Doxygen -- http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/projects.html. Some of them are well known (e.g. KDE, MySQL,...). There are probably more reasons why they have chosen the Doxygen tool.

One tool being better than another depends on your requirements ... what all features in a documentation tool are useful for you?
