Using background threads for long processes in MFC: Foreground Thread 2

We can deal with the first one (no feedback), by using an hourglass:

void CBgthreadDlg::OnForegroundHourglass()
    CWaitCursor wait;

    Task task(NULL);

This certainly looks better. The user knows that the application is busy, so they’re less likely to think it’s gone wrong. It still doesn’t repaint properly, though.
