I just started using Microsoft's Visual C++...
Using MFC AppWizard I created single document application...I chose doc/view architecture and used the other default settings. (Note: I selected CRichEditView as my a base class in the final step)
I built and executed the application just to see what it would do. Wow, it handles just about everything automatically. Oddly enough, though, it won't actually open a document. It sets the name of the file in the title bar and adds the file to the MRU list, but that is it.
What exactly did I forget??
