Opening a Dialog Box from a Dll (Without hInst)

Recommended Posts

I want to open an status dialog box from my Dll (For GDarena) but I''m encountering a problem. I''m getting the Instance handle from
HMODULE hInst = GetModuleHandle(NULL); 
but when I call:
hDialog = CreateDialog(hInst, (LPCTSTR)IDD_BOTINFO, NULL, &BotDialog); 
It gives the error ''The specified resource name cannot be found in the image file''. How can I fix this?

I''m having the same problem, only i''m using a static library. Using NULL gives: "The specified resource name cannot be found in the image file", and using GetModuleHandle(NULL) or GetCurrentProcess() gives: "The specified image file did not contain a resource section." and i can''t use DllMain() since it''s not a dll.
