I want to create a document without displaying a new view or frame window.

I am able to create a new document and view at the same time using CMultiDocTemplate.  

How can I create a hidden window (with a document and without flashing or changing the active view)?

Hmm
you can create document without view-frame by calling operator new.
but in this case you must provide public constructor for your document and also you must delete it manually (since MFC destroy doc when it`s frame has being destroyed).
Or you want create any docs based on the CMultiDocTemplate?
in this case you can use CreateNewDocument method of the CMultiDocTemplate

for example:
{
//look for needed template
CWinApp* pApp = AfxGetApp();
POSITION posTemplate = pApp->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();
CDocTemplate* pTemplate = NULL;
while ((pTemplate = pApp-> GetNextDocTemplate( posTemplate) )!= NULL)
{
CDocument* pDocOpened = NULL;
if (pTemplate->MatchDocType(".docext", pDocOpened) != yesAttemptNative)
continue;
CDocument*  pDoc= pTemplate->CreateNewDocument();
}
}

here: ".docext" is extension of the document files you want to open. - see string  resource for document template
