Converting a C Windows program to C++ using MFC

Converting a C Windows program to C++ using MFC

I have an old Windows program written in C that was partially converted to C++ but doesn't use MFC. I wondered if anyone's had experience converting such a program to use MFC before to judge if it's worth the effort or if it's better to leave well enough alone or to start a new version from scratch.

RE: Converting a C Windows program to C++ using MFC

Converting code to MFC normally results in a larger executable. You also have dependencies on particular versions of MFC unless you link statically. Instead of converting to MFC, why not convert to WTL. Looks the same as MFC but it is template based and ends up with a very much smaller executable.

RE: Converting a C Windows program to C++ using MFC

It's sounding like I should leave well enough alone, but I'll take a look at WTL.
