FIX: Visual C++ 2008 MFC application that was created by using Visual Studio 2008 freezes

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You develop a Visual C++ Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) application by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.

  • You run the application together with a UI Automation client, such as UISpy or Inspect.

  • You try to close the MFC application.

In this scenario, the application may freeze.

Resolution

This fix removes the CMFCComObject class so that the AfxOleLockApp method is no longer called. Therefore, the accessibility application or the Automation client is also closed automatically when the MFC application shuts down.
