Hello, I’m Pat Brenner, a developer on the Visual C++ Libraries team. I recently shared some information about the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library in this blog post. Several people responded to that post asking for a list of bugs that have been fixed in MFC for Visual Studio 2012.
Though I cannot provide a complete list of the bugs in our internal bug database, here is a list of the bugs that were reported by customers through our Connect site that have been fixed in MFC for Visual Studio 2012 RTM. Click on any Connect bug number to see more information about that bug.
I hope you find this information useful. As you can see, we do pay attention to and take action on the bugs that are reported on the Connect site. So please continue to report bugs that you find in MFC (or any of the Visual C++ libraries)—we do want to hear about them.

Regaarding "584677 MFC projects targeted for Windows XP cause stack corruption." is that targeted to XP using the VS2012 tools (yeah!) or still the VS2010 tools (boo)?
Nice work, but we need to have these Bug fixed in VS 2010, since we can't use VC2012 because of the broken Windows XP support!
Does MFC support resizable dialogs yet? It's 2012...
Regarding the questions about Windows XP, please see the post at blogs.msdn.com/.../10320645.aspx that addresses those questions. Thanks!
One additional comment that I should have added: this list represents just over half of the total number of bugs that were fixed in MFC for Visual Studio 2012, and most of them likely would have not been found by our internal testing. So my thanks go out to those who are reporting bugs--you are truly helping to improve the quality of MFC.
Perfect! When will a "Service Pack" for Visual Studio 2010?
I posted an MFC bug in Connect, but it was closed as 'external': connect.microsoft.com/.../mfc-release-libraries-missing-afxctl-ambient-cache
Yes, sp2 to VS 2010 is needed very much! Will this point be considered by Microsoft?
