Well, strictly speaking the answer to your question is to create a thread somewhere in your single-threaded application.  So a AfxBeginThread() might be a good place to start.

What is totally unclear from your question is WHY you want to do such a thing.  A serious answer can really only be given to a serious question.  As it is, your question is silly.  Saying "I have to changed it to multi-threaded" makes me believe that this is a HOMEWORK assignment and not real work.  If it were real work, you'd have some specific goal in mind for improving an existing single-threaded application by making it multi-threaded.  Multi-threading is not an end in itself.  It's a tool that can SOMETIMES be useful and powerful.  It can also be a detriment when used for the wrong reasons....

Frankly, I suspect you are a student and are asking this since it was assined in your class.  As such, you really should review the Experts Exchange policy regarding academics...

void __cdecl my_great_thread(void *dummy)
{
  while(1)
  {
    MessageBox("void __cdecl my_great_thread(void *dummy) says hi there :)");
  }
}

place this in InitInstance

_beginthread(my_great_thread,0,NULL);

now you have a multi-threaded app

mr jhance, I'm very sorry for not clear in my question.
I'm new to ATL. I 'm working on developing loadtesting software. Here as a proof of concept i developed a single threaded application which captures dom events as well as user events. But i left with two challenges.

1 migrating my application into multi threaded one
2 capturing Alert boxes which are going to fired on browser(Security alerts in hotmail when ever user login into it).

As per your suggestion i'll try with afxbeginthread implementation. but please suggest me a better solution.

thanking you
