Are you taking over someone elses project which has already been started using MFC, or are you doing it from scratch? Either way, I'd probably just use the native VC++ environment as you will spend 3-5x as much time trying to get your custom environment working.

I used to do a decent amount of windows development work (mostly porting, some native stuff) and I found VC++ easy to use and quick when I just wanted to Get It Done.
