  • Hi Aliprf,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    I think this sentence can answer this question: When compiling to managed code, the compiler translates your source code into Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL), which is a CPU-independent set of instructions that can be efficiently converted to native code.  


    I hope this will be helpful.

    Best regards,
