Greetings!

I am working on a legacy MFC application that is asserting when it is
brought up in a "virtual invisible desktop" that is not visible to the
currently logged in user. This program is started by a different
remote application; I am not familiar with that other application so
cannot describe the notion of "virtual desktop" with any accuracy.

My MFC application is asserting, giving the call stack below.There is
a little bit of explaining. The call stack shows that we are in
InitInstance() trying to make a call to displayTrayIcon(), which
asserts, showing an error dialog. At this point an OLE automation call
is handled, resulting in a proprietary application failure (this
second problem is not an issue here).

Any ideas? Please be gentle, as I haven't done any MFC work in about 7
years.
