Only if they're pure CIL. If they're mixed-mode, i.e. contain both
native and CIL code in the dll/exe, then Mono can only run them on
Windows or Wine.

Unfortunately most C++/CLI is mixed-mode; although it's possible to
run C++/CLI in CIL-only mode, that not very common, as managed/native
interop is the main reason to use it.
