As an old Windows 3.1 API programmer, I'm wondering what, if any, advantage there is to using the AppWizard in Visual C++ 6.  I'm trying to learn Visual C++, but the wizard seems to get in my way more often than not.  

I want to ignore AFX and just use MFC.  Any comments?

Thanks,
Jim

The AppWizard provides a starting point for your application. Coming from Win3.1, don't you find it bothersome to recreate WinMain(), write code to call RegisterWndClass(), and a starting WndProc()? I certainly did, but by using AppWizard, all of the boilerplate code is there and is ready to go. This is what makes AppWizard very easy to use. However, if you are not familiar with the generated code or if the generated code is not quite right for you, you can create your own AppWizard!
