Best way to port C++ windows game code to Gear VR?

As question. I already have the source code for a game written for Windows. Whats a good way to port it over for the Gear VR? I hear Unreal uses C++. I wouldn't really want to recode the whole thing to C# in Unity as I don't know C#.

The game is a first person shooter and was written around mid 2000 so isn't a hugely modern game and runs on Win98, XP and 7.

Any advice appreciated.

    Our engineering team recommends rewriting the application in Unity or Unreal as there isn't an easy way to directly port DX7-era C++ to Android.

    I found the sourcecode of a linux port of the game which uses OpenGL. Does that make things easier?
