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

void AFXAPI AfxSetAmbientActCtx( 
BOOL bSet 


New value of the module state flag.

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.
