I am not sure why this is failing with Error code 1813 is ERROR_RESOURCE_TYPE_NOT_FOUND , "test.dll is in the same directory as the source files and it compiles fine...
#include "stdafx.h"
#include "WinApp.h"
#include <windows.h>

in resource.h there is 
#define ID_DLL                   106
in WinApp.rc there is 
ID_DLL                RC_DATA    "test.dll"
"test.dll" is in the source file directory

#define MAX_LOADSTRING 100
char OutBuffer[64];

int APIENTRY _tWinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
                     HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
                     LPTSTR    lpCmdLine,
                     int       nCmdShow)
	if(hResInfo != NULL)
		MessageBox(NULL,"FindResource Loaded","",0);
		wsprintf(OutBuffer,"%s %d\n","FindResource Failed",GetLastError());
	return 0;
