Why my Nested Dialog Box doesn't work????

I create a dialog resource template with a "hole" in it( a grounp box ). I set the child window with ID stc32=ox045f.
I want to put a CFileDialog box in it. But when I run the program, it only shows the CFileDialog box and nothing else
why ??? Do I need set some flag(Environment) ??

The CFileDialog is a modal dialog and as such it is not designed to be used within another dialog. If you need this behavior, you will need to write the code yourself. However, at least the template can be reused. Look in your VC\Include directory for a file called FILEOPEN.DLG for the dialog template resource. But then you will need to write the code to handle the displaying and updating of the controls.

Hi, thui

thanks for your help.
I got some questions here. I can put that CFileDialog box as a nested Dialog box in another dialog box. But my problem is
I can do it on some other machine but I can not do it on my machine. I don't know the reason.

Would you please think about it again?
Do I need to set up some enviroment flag for this?

thanks again
