MFC Feature Pack for Visual C++ 2008

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The Visual C++ 2008 Feature Pack includes an expanded MFC library to support modern user interface (UI) elements such as the Office Fluent UI, docking windows and MDI tabbed windows similar to those used in some releases of Visual Studio, enhanced toolbars, a rich new set of controls, support for controlling the overall visual style, support for desktop alerts, and much more.

For a full list of features supported in this expansion of the MFC library, see What's New (MFC Feature Pack).

These features are included in an updated version of the MFC 9.0 library that is available for download as an update that installs over your Visual C++ 2008 installation.
