I try to create a cwnd object in a dll. I did it in USRDLL but failed in a dynamic-link-mfc dll. Since I need to create several dlls, I want them to share mfc library rather. The problem I had was an assert error(afxcurrentinstancehandle is NULL). I am using MSVC++4.2 and the calling app. is non-MFC(VB4 in this case). I am still new to this so experienced MFC programmers please turn the light.

There are several ways of approaching your problem. I will demonstrate you one of the easiest ways of doing this :
(I am not very familiar with VB so I will use C syntax)

from your DLL side

__declspec(dllexport) int WINAPI SomeFunction( HWND hWnd)
{

}
