I am trying to get a handle to the command bar in my windows mobile application using the following:
 HWND hCmdBar;
// Initialize when creating the command bar
hCmdBar = CommandBar_Create(hInst, hwnd, 1);

What paramaters do I use for the hInst and hwnd in MFC?

according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms908131.aspx, you would need the following:

hwnd = parent hwnd (eg AfxGetMainWnd()->m_hWnd)
hInst = AfxGetInstanceHandle()

Thanks
HINSTANCE hInst;
hInst = AfxGetInstanceHandle();

gives me:
error C2275: 'HINSTANCE' : illegal use of this type as an expression

are you sure you haven't missed some semicolon or something BEFORE declaring HINSTANCE variable?

it may be just that :)

btw, why do you need it at all? create any dummy project and select some Smartphone SDK. you'll see how it creates dialog bar there

ah, then look at SHFindMenuBar() - this gives you the default menubar (if any)

I have did this and finf that it does the trick in the emulator:

HWND hWnd;
hWnd = ::SHFindMenuBar(this->m_hWnd);
::ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_HIDE);

But I notice that when I deploy it to my WM6 device the SIP button is still visible (right in the centre of the menu bar)

How can I hide this?

ahhh, that's another story :), usually it's pretty hard to achieve. use Spy++ to discover related windows and hide them. you might want to open separate question, so everyone can discuss this issue there

or perhaps try DestroyWindow(hwndMenubar)
