Launching Excel by opening an .xls file via Windows Explr
I have Excel 2002 SP-2 installed. When I open an .xls file
via Windows Explorer it takes at least 20 seconds to open
Excel and about another 5-10 to open the .xls file. The
..xls file can be as small as 26K and still it takes 30
seconds or so to open. However, if I open Excel first (it
takes less than five seconds to launch Excel) and then
open the .xls file using Excel, then the file opens almost
Any ideas on why this is the case?

Excel 2003 does not have the icon "window", to freeze and unfreeze rows and
colums. Is there an alternate way to do this process?
AFAIK this icon was never a standard part of any of the toolbars in any
version - however you can get to the feature under window / freeze pane menu
option or you can add the icon to your toolbars and use this.
To add the icon
- choose view / toolbars / customize from the menu
- choose the commands tab
- choose the windows and help category
- scroll down the right hand side until you see the icon for freeze panes
- click on it and drag it to one...MFC in Managed C++ Application
I M new in VC++ 7.0
I want to know whether we can use standard MFC classes
in "Managed C++ applications" type projects for VC++ 7.0
Currently, the framework created by "Managed C++
Application" for VC++ projects does not supports usage of
common MFC classes like CString. Do, I have to include
some header to use MFC classes ?
Thanks in advance for the response.
Managed C++ has its own string classes.

I have created a NT service ( in vc++ 6.0) which can run my prog. as
service. My problem is that my prog. should run when a user logs in and
take user-id for its working and stop as soon as the user log off. Can
anybody help me in solving this problem. Any APIs ?
If you just want to run your program only when your user logsin in and want
to stop working when it logs off, why do you want to make a service ?? it
should just be put in start up or in registry with run folder..
No need to develop a service..

Can anyone recommend any good examples, websites, books or other resources
on how to get MFC to talk to databases?
You should look at codeguru and codeproject for this. For ODBC, see
MFC ships some samples related to database as well. You can also use
ADO.Net in MFC if you want to go the managed way(managed cpp).
...using a modeless WinForms "application" from MFC
I'm in the process of adding a bunch of new .NET functionality to a (poorly
behaved) legacy MFC application. One of the things I'm adding is a "source
code editor" (ala VBA): the window should minimize/restore separately from
the main application, have its own menu/toolbar, etc.
The first approach was straight-forward enough: create the "application" as
a Form and use it as a modeless dialog. However, things didn't work right
with menu keyboard accelerators and the like (Ctrl-C, Alt-X, F1), apparently
a result of the main MFC application grabbing them.
