The easiest way to do this is to derive a class from CProgressCtrl and override the OnPaint function (use ClassWizard to this).  In the CDialog derived class, add a member of the derived CProgressCtrl.  In OnInitDialog (use class Wizard to add it (WM_INITDIALOG is the message)), call
CProgressCtrl::SubclassDlgItem(...).  It might be easier to show the progress as a full bar rather than the mini rectangles that the standard control uses.

The color of the progress bar is determined by the selection color that is set in the user settings.
