OLE without MFC

I am writing an addin required an OLE component to be inserted into a dialog box edited by VC++ 5.0.  

1) I start writing it without using any project wizard ( and I do not need them in fact ).  When I insert an OLE component, it does appear in the resource view and there is no error when I compile it.  Nevertheless, the dialog box cannot start and an error comes out : Not enough memory.
This situation will not occur if I remove the inserted OLE component.  Also, I have tried out the same dialog box configuration by starting it with MFC appWizard.  There is no error in this case.

2) If I really use the OLE control in my dialog box, how can I use the OLE control's method without using MFC or how can I accommodate my non-MFC code with the MFC-model OLE control class ?

Your addin application must be OLE container to include OLE component.
I think that the reason of your problem. And You do not have to use MFC to write OLE container since your code is not MFC based. You need just provide set of interfaces which are standard for OLE container. Detail information with sample non-MFC code for OLE container you can find in "Inside OLE" book.(MS Press). You also can find this book on MSDN CD.
