Merging Orchard Into an Existing Site

I'd like to add Orchard into an existing site. I don't need the data to merge together or anything complicated, just that we can share the same CSS, perhaps some web controls and so forth.

I've tried copying Orchard into an existing site, but I'm getting an error of the "None of the constructors found with policy 'Autofac.Core.Activators.Reflection.BindingFlagsConstructorFinder' on type 'Orchard.Environment.DefaultOrchardShell' can be invoked with the available services and parameters:" type.

Am I doing things wrong? Is there a better way to be doing this?

It's probably going to be extremely challenging to do it this way. Adding an existing application to Orchard as a module would be much easier.

If you just want to share CSS, it would probably be best to work with two separate web applications: CSS doesn't care what applicaiton it comes from.
