I'm trying to make a Windows 95 program (in VC5.0 w/ MFC) without a QUIT option, either by graying out the X in the upper-right corner, or by reopening the application after a quit (but without making a wrapper program).  Any suggestions?

To be sure you could intercept the messages WM_QUIT, WM_CLOSE and WM_DESTROY in your main window and just discard them, instead of letting the default WndProc close everything.

I'm a bit more of a neophyte than that -- how do I discard a message?  I tried making an OnClose, etc, function which just returned, but it didn't seem to work.

Thanks.

Using ClassWizard, add an entry to the message map of the main window (did you check if it is being added to CMainFrame?) for WM_CLOSE. If the body is empty (don't even call the base implementation...) it should work.
If it doesn't add a comment and I'll try testing myself.
