Want to inherit from CObject using MS VC++ v5 ClassWizard

New to MS Visual C++ but not to C++ programming in general. I'm building an app with MS VC++ v5, and want to create a class which inherits from CObject, not one of its derivatives (this is a base class for other "work" objects I'll create, not an object associated with UI processing). Would like to use Class Wizard so I can build components for reuse in other apps. Can this be done? If so, what are the steps? If not, any alternative approaches you can suggest?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Choose the menu option Insert / Insert Class.  Now, just name your class and choose the base class to be CObject.  This class will now reside in ClassWizard and have all of the default comments and preprocessor marks MFC kindly enters for you.
