Who can I get my dialog (derived from CDialog) to respond to the PreTranslateMessage.  I can do it with no problems in 32-bit, but in 16-bit, the same function never gets called.
I'm trying to use this to capture the keyboard input before it gets to an edit box (which has the focus).

Perhaps you should try reposting your question in one of the programming pages? This is not really a Windows setup problem.

Yes, I thought that I was posting this to the windows 3.x programming, however, it would seem that windows 3.x programing and windows 3.x setup are routed to the same place, so here I am stuck with this question in the wrong group.  Is there any way to retract a question?  (this question has already been answered in the windows95 programing section)

You could try handling WM_GETDLGCODE and returning DLGC_WANTMESSAGE if you're forwarding the message to the control after handling it...I remember having used this on 16-bit windows  some time back...though don't remember the details very well; online help will probably have something on it.

Hope this helps...
