It varies widely depending on the project.

For user interface stuff (at least assuming windows) if you were using like, MFC before, you're basically going to need to rewrite that part using the original code as a reference.

For algorithmic stuff it depends. If you're doing pointer ops all over the place that will be difficult to port as you need to change it to indexing into arrays (typically). Otherwise, if you're using things like vector and map they have direct corollaries in C# so that kind of thing is easier.

Just remember structs are on the stack and classes are on the heap in C#. That has a lot of different ramifications, such as changing how they are passed to functions (byval instead of byref). Be careful when porting that kind of thing from C++ which makes little distinction between classes and structs.
