What do you mean by ''export''? Do you want to call an exported function that pops a dialog? or do you want to access the dialog template from the dll?

With either approach, the catch will be to use the proper hIsntance to reference the resource.

DialogBox(g_hDll, MAKEINTRESOURCE(ABOUTDLG), GetActiveWindow(), (DLGPROC)AboutDlgProc);

Where g_hDll is the HINSTANCE of the dll that can be obtained in the DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH case of DllMain.
