How do I hide the main window at start up? I'm creating an MFC SDI app as a system tray item an would like the program to not show up when it starts. If I use WS_HIDE in the InitInstance() function of the app class the window flashes. I've tried modifing the CREATESTURCT in both OnCreate() and PreCreateWindow() in the MainFrame. For 100 points and what's behind curtain II, what have I missed.?

The only changes that you have to make are in your InitInstance() member function of your application class:
Here after the line - ParseCommandInfo(cmdInfo); and before the line if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo) add the following line:
m_nCmdShow=SW_HIDE;
and then change the line with m_pMainWnd->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW) to m_pMainWnd->ShowWindow(m_nCmdShow);
Thanks,
