Basically you need to make two changes:

(1) In Project -> Settings -> General, select either "Use MFC in a shared DLL"
      or "Use MFC in a Static Library"

(2) Include afx.h as well as windows.h

The following small example shows this (it uses the MFC class CTime)

#include <afx.h>
#include <windows.h>

int WINAPI WinMain (HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
                    PSTR szCmdLine, int iCmdShow)
      // Get current day of the week as an integer
      CTime ct;
      int iDay=ct.GetDayOfWeek();
      // Ring the bell to indicate day of the week, then quit
      int i;

      return 0;
