Use this function to get the current state of the per-module state flag, which affects the WinSxS behavior of MFC.

BOOL AFXAPI AfxGetAmbientActCtx(); 

Module state flag current value.

When the flag is set (which is the default) and a thread enters an MFC module (see AFX_MANAGE_STATE), the context of the module is activated.

If the flag is not set, the context of the module is not activated on entry.

The context of a module is determined from its manifest, usually embedded in module resources.
