call the following api from InitInstance

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDRAGFULLWINDOWS, false, NULL, 0);

I found you can minimize flickering by overriding OnSize in the form view and adding

if (m_bInitialized)
{
    SetRedraw(FALSE);
    CFormView::OnSize(nType, cx, cy);
    SetRedraw(TRUE);
    Invalidate();
}
else
    CFormView::OnSize(nType, cx, cy);

But there isn't really a way to eliminate it completely that I've located.

m_bInitialized is set in OnInitialUpdate.

// try the following:
// override OnEraseBkgnd of the form view and write the following code:
// it should reduce the flickering dramatically

BOOL CMyFormView::OnEraseBkgnd(CDC* pDC)
{
      CRect rcBounds;
      GetClientRect(&rcBounds);

      // loop all the child windows and collect their regions
      CWnd* pwndChild = GetWindow(GW_CHILD);
      CRgn rgnResult, rgn1;
      rgnResult.CreateRectRgn(rcBounds.left, rcBounds.top, rcBounds.right, rcBounds.bottom);
      CRect rcChild;
      while (pwndChild)
      {
            pwndChild->GetClientRect(&rcChild);
            pwndChild->ClientToScreen(&rcChild);
            ScreenToClient(&rcChild);

            // subtract the control region from the dialog region
            rgn1.CreateRectRgn(rcChild.left, rcChild.top, rcChild.right, rcChild.bottom);
            rgnResult.CombineRgn(&rgnResult, &rgn1, RGN_DIFF);
            pwndChild = pwndChild->GetNextWindow();

            rgn1.DeleteObject();
      }


      // limit refresh to the resulting region
      pDC->SelectClipRgn(&rgnResult, RGN_COPY);

      BOOL bRet = CFormView::OnEraseBkgnd(pDC);

      pDC->SelectClipRgn(NULL, RGN_COPY);

      return bRet;
}
