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?
