Minimize Dialog App On Init

Hello,
I have a Win32/MFC Dialog App (MSVC++6). I want it to start minimized (SW_HIDE). I have a taskbar icon that can be used to show it when needed. The approaches i've tried either don't work or the main dialog flashes on the screen before it disappears. What is the best way to do this?

This turns out to be rather tricky.  It is covered here:

Note that it will cost you 20 points to read that answer.  Sorry.  But the information is available nowhere else -- it took me hours to work it out.
