linking to MFC with static link library not DLL in V6.0

Prior to C++ Version 6.0 the AppWizard had on option
to let you select between linking to MFC dll or statically
linking the code into your application. That option seems
to have gone now. Is it still possible to link statically?
Where is this change documented? I've tried removing the
_AFXDLL compile defines from the C/C++ and resources settings and changing the "Use run-time Library" to "Debug Multithreaded" from "Debug Multithreaded Dll". But now the linker can't find nafxcw.lib. Which
is not unreasonable as I can't find it either and it's not
on my V6.0 distribution CD.

After you generate the application, you can use Project | Settings to change the option. Make sure to switch to the General page and under Microsoft Foundation Classes change the combobox item from Use MFC in a Shared DLL to Use MFC in a Static Library. Do a Rebuild All.

Make sure that you are using the Professional or higher version of 6.0. If you have the standard or Learning edition, those do not have the source to MFC or the MFC static libraries. If you have the CD-ROM, you can copy the MFC static libraries to the MFC\LIB directory and relink.

I'm using a standard edition. Silly me for assuming that you would be able to build an executable. Do you know where in the documentation Microsoft confess up that the standard edition is not enough to build a stand-alone executable.
