I am having a big time problem trying to get the HINSTANCE of my OWL app! All I need it for is to send it to TDib's constructor so I can load a TDib from my resources. I have tried using many techniques, including using GetWindowClass(), and GetWindowLong(). I keep getting General Protection Faults every time I try to get the HINSTANCE. Please Help!

Hi!

I use that code

HINSTANCE hInstance = *GetApplication();    // from application
HINSTANCE hInstance = ::Module->GetInstance();  // from DLL

Hope this helps!
