Win32 Rich Edit Control Problem

I have problems using the Rich Edit Control under Win32. I use VC5 to create a dialog based MFC application and put the Rich Edit Control onto the dialog. After I execute this app it terminates without any notice. The debugger shows "creation of dialog failed" or something like that. My app has ActiveX support enabled and I tested it also with OLE Automation enabled. I didn't change the dialog resource. I only created a new rich edit control. A simple edit control and the Microsoft ActiveX Rich Edit Control, Version 5.0 works. Where is my failure? Please help.

Just a wild guess - does it work if you call?

...if you call InitCommonControls(), of course :-)

No, it doesn't work even if I call InitCommonControls. But displaying the rich edit controls isn't longer a problem. I used a edit control as a place holder, grab its styles and size, destroyed the edit control and created a new rich edit control in OnInitDialog. Now the dialog pops up. I can write text but I cannot paste any OLE objects into it. What I'm doing wrong now?

Call AfxInitRichEdit() in InitInstance(), probably you forgot this.
