Hi Experts,

I have to port our sourcecode from Visual Studio 6 to Visual Studio 8 (2005).

In the existing code quite at the beginning of the program the function OnNewDocument() is called.
Calls made there to  AfxGetMainWnd()  return NULL in Visual Studio 8 while they return useful values when the same sourcecode is compiled with Visual Studio 6.


At that point there is still no window drawn

create a pointer to the CMainFrame object and use that pointer instead of what AfxGetMainWnd() is returning. the CMainFrame object remains constant throughout the lifetime of the application's runtime, so there's no reason to call AfxGetMainWnd() to return it for you when it's there already.
