No matter how I combine WS_MAXIMIZE with cs.style in CMainFrame::PreCreateWindow, when I execute the application it does not maximize. Please can you supply the correct syntax from an app that has actually been tried and works!

As you have noticed  changing the styles in the  CreateStruct of PreCreateWindow to WS_MAXIMIZE does not work.To maximize the Frame Window just add the statement
ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);
before the "return 0" statement  of the OnCretae function in the  CMainframe. This would solve your problem.
