RAS Win32 APIs launching Dial-up networking account dialoge

Does anyone know of a Win32 API that can be used to call a specific Dial-up networking dialoge.  I need to support an attended dial-up connecting process.  I need an API that is supported on both 95 and NT.  I have looked at the RASAPIs, RasDial() and RasDialDlg().  RasDial() only supports unattended dialing, doesn't it?  I couldn't get it to simply launch the specified dial-up networking account.  And RasDialDlg() is only supported on NT.  Anyone have any suggestions.  An MFC class would be even better?
Thanks

I don't think there is an API for both NT and 95.

Yes, CreateProcess is the preferred function rather than WinExec. My example is just a quick-and-dirty one. You should be able to change it easily.

In fact this question has been asked several times in the Windows Programming topic area.

On Windows NT, call RasDialDlg. On Windows 95, use the following code.

CString strCmd("rundll32 rnaui.dll,RnaDial ");
strCmd += "TheConnectionName";      // entry name
::WinExec(strCmd, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

Is there an API I can user for both NT and 95 or is there a command predecessor like "rundll32 rnaui.dll,RnaDial " for NT?
Additionally, I would prefer to use CreateProcess() instead of WinExec for Win32 programming.  Is there any reason why I can't I want to use CreateProcess() primarily becuase I need to close the process down when communications are complete.
