Depends on the language the original was written in as well as how well-structured it is.

I would go about this by first and foremost separating business logic from plumbing. Then, by mapping the APIs used in the business logic part to .NET parts. While P/Invoking them is certainly feasible, that's only advised if the goal is defined as sticking as close as possible to the original and/or there's no corresponding .NET APIs.
