Hello Experts,
I'm new in VC++.
I created an MFC application (in .Net 2002 unmanaged C++) as SDI and added a resource form (IDD_FORMVIEW).
Now I want that after starting the application the menu with the form is displayed.
Actually only the menu and the toolbar is displayed.
If anyone knows what I need to do,
please supply an appropriate information.

Thank you for any help.

Is the view of that app derived from CFormView? In that case it should be done automatically. Otherwise you can create a new project where you select within the appwizard that the view is derived from CFormView. That way it will start automatically with that view. Otherwise you need to add a class to the form (IDD_FORMVIEW) derived from CFormView. And now you need to replace all calls to the old view class with that new one. Decide yourself which way is faster.

Thank you SteH,
I created the MFC environment,
then I added the resource using IDD_FORMVIEW.
Now clicking the right mouse on the form I created a new class
called CMyForm based on CFormView (ID=IDD_FORMVIEW).
But the result is still unchanged.
I did not change anything to the "old view class", is it CFormView?
I found CFormView only in my new class.

When you used the appwizard to create a new MFC executable on the first page you can select SDI. On the sixth page you can select the base class to be CFormView where it seems that you selected CView. That gives you 4 classes in your class browser:
CYourApp
CYourView
CMainFrame
CYourDoc

You need to replace all occurences of CYourView whihc was derived from CView with CMyForm. These replaces should be in CYourApp and CYourDlg. Only after these steps CMyForm class will the used as view.

Thank you SteH,
now I modified inside CYourApp the line
  RUNTIME_CLASS(CYourView));
to
  RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyForm));
and added the header file MyForm.h.
And - it works as expected.

Again, thank you very much.
