We have a very large C++.NET solution that is completely undocumented from a technical point of view. Is it possible to generate at least some starting point documentation automatically? Alternatively what methods might we employ at this stage?

HI

see http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/

This tool is highly customizable although its learning curve takes more than sandcastle
