See the MSJ January 1998 article by Paul DiLascia (and download the code from www.microsoft.com/msj)

His class, CCoolMenuManager is very simple to use, something like this:

    // In the CMainFrame class definition
    CCoolMenuManager m_coolMenu;

    // In CMainFrame::OnCreate
    m_coolMenu.Install(this);
    m_coolMenu.LoadToolbar(IDR_MAINFRAME);

and that's it, you have menus with perfectly working bitmaps on them.
