No document at startup

I am doing one MDI with multiple documents types application.
The framework activates one window to choose the document
to open. That is fine during the new command but i don´t want to have this window every times the application starts.
In fact i would like to start the application without creating any document.
How can i do it?

If you created your MDI application with AppWizard, you should have the following lines in your CWinApp::InitInstance function :

// Parse command line for standard shell commands, DDE, file open
CCommandLineInfo cmdInfo;
ParseCommandLine(cmdInfo);
// Dispatch commands specified on the command line
if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo))
      return FALSE;

To prevent MFC to open a new MDI child window on app start, add the following two lines :

// Parse command line for standard shell commands, DDE, file open
CCommandLineInfo cmdInfo;
ParseCommandLine(cmdInfo);
-->  if (cmdInfo.m_nShellCommand == CCommandLineInfo::FileNew)
-->    cmdInfo.m_nShellCommand = CCommandLineInfo::FileNothing ;
// Dispatch commands specified on the command line
if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo))
      return FALSE;

For more info, check "m_nShellCommand" online help.
