I've created a MDI App with AppWizard. How do I prevent the
program from opening a default document when starting?

If you are using 5.0 or later the only changes that you have to make are in your InitInstance() member function of your application class:

After the line:
      ParseCommandInfo(cmdInfo);
and before the line:
      if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo)

add the following lines:
      // DON'T display a new MDI child window during startup!!!
      cmdInfo.m_nShellCommand = CCommandLineInfo::FileNothing;
 
(I don't recall how it was done previously, but I recall it was more obvious, so I'm sure that this will solve your problem)

Good Luck
