Disable or remove?

to remove you need to overwrite PreCreateWindow and remove
some styles

Something in line of

LONG lStyle = ::GetWindowLong(hWnd, GWL_STYLE);
lStyle &= ~(WS_MINIMIZEBOX | WS_MAXIMIZEBOX);
::SetWindowLong(hWnd, GWL_STYLE, lStyle);

To disable close button use

EnableMenuItem(::GetSystemMenu(AfxGetMainWnd()->m_hWnd, FALSE), SC_CLOSE, MF_BYCOMMAND | MF_GRAYED);

Hope it helps...

Or, by the way.

The only way I know of to disable minimize/maximize buttons is to delete corresponing menu items

DeleteMenu(::GetSystemMenu(AfxGetMainWnd()->m_hWnd,FALSE), SC_MINIMIZE, MF_BYCOMMAND);

after that minimiza item no longer present on system menu, and while minimize button still present and seems active it doesn't do anything....

It should be the same instead of AfxGetMainWnd() use CWnd* of a window that you want disabled....
If you are in that window you can use this pointer.

Does "Minimize" menu item still exist?  
By the way the simpliest way to prevent user to minimize your app is to overwrite SC_MINIMIZE message.  
May be you can do that?
