OpenCV is pure standard C++.

Windows Forms is for creating Microsoft Windows applications on the .NET Framework.

=>You should search here for questions on .NET or C# ...there are many topics.

Basically you could check some unofficial OpenCV wrapper for .NET like Emgu CV (GPL or Commercial Licence), theirs Code Gallery and or some example like this

Actually that is not quite true... you can make a windows form application that runs on C++ instead of C# and make use of the OpenCV standard lib... check this, this and this.

Good to know. In my opinion, it doesn't looks a good way to start a project using mix managed and unmanaged code. It should be a good reason to do this and a good plan to maintain the project along time. Anyway you can find a tons pro and cons on the Net.

Thats the largest downside indeed. Manageability is a pittfall of this approach. It works for small projects quite well, but once it gets big, I suggest moving on to another GUI interface that works better with C++.
