Please tell me what is the best method for invoking the AfxBeginThread.


You call (i.e., invoke) it at the moment you are ready for a secondary thread to exist. Instead of polling the serial port for data, you could let it tell your process when something is ready to be read, like:

HANDLE hCom = CreateFile("\\\\.\\COM1", ...); // use FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED
...
AfxBeginThread(ReadThread, this);
...
UINT ReadThread( LPVOID p )
{
    OVERLAPPED ov = {0};
    ov.hEvent = CreateEvent();

    while (! bDone)
    {
        if (! ReadFile(hCom, ..., &ov))
        {
            if (WaitForSingleObject(ov.hEvent, INFINITE) == WAIT_OBJECT_0)
            {
                GetOverlappedResult(hCom, &ov, ...);
            }
        }
    }
}
This is very simplistic and I've omitted a lot of details, but hopefully you get the general idea.

"Fireproof doesn't mean the fire will never come. It means when the fire comes that you will be able to withstand it." - Michael Simmons

"Man who follows car will be exhausted." - Confucius
