``` layout: article title: Introduction to MFC Programming with Visual C++ Version 6.x by Marshall Brain —

Series Overview

The goal of this series is to help you to gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts that make MFC programs work under Visual C++. Many people jump into Visual C++, start up the AppWizard, have it generate a new program framework, and then hit a wall. That wall arises because it is hard to understand the MFC code generated by the AppWizard. This same wall affects people who try to work through the "Scribble" tutorial that comes with Visual C++. Without a fundamental understanding of MFC code structure, the tutorials simply make no sense.

This series starts at the very beginning, and shows you the simple, fundamental concepts that drive any MFC program. Once you have finished this series you will find that MFC and the App Wizard output make a lot more sense.
