How to replace WinMain() of MFC with my own...

As we know, WinMain() function in MFC application is prepared by MFC itself and linked into the code automatically.  This implies, that even we only want to use DAO/WinSock object, a CWinApp class instance is required.  Such constraint is very inconvenient for us because we don't want to use the whole MFC framework (we just want to make use of DAO...).

I think it's common problem for MFC programmers.  Thus, could anyone give me your experience about "HOW TO REPLACE MFC'S WinMain() WITH YOUR OWN ONE"?

I'm afraid that even if you replace WinMain, you would still have to play the game of MFC and use a CWinApp class.

CWinApp implements the message loop. You would have to do it yourself (including idle time handling to update your user interface). I'm pretty sure most other features will assert if they can't find an application object.

My advice is to stick with the App class, but do not create document and view objects. If you statically link your application, you should get a light .EXE (if you can assume that your customers all have the DLL version of MFC, this is even better of course).
