How can I make the progress control in MFC be a solid bar rather than a segmented bar?  If I cannot do it with MFC then how can I do it.  So many apps have the solid bar with the % complete in the middle of the bar.

MFC doesn't implement the control you're referring to; it's implemented by Windows.  Windows doesn't provide for having the control draw a solid bar.

You can make your own control very readily: just draw a rectangle.  Fill the left percentage with the rectangle with one colour, and the balance of the rectangle with the window background colour.
