I would like to include the resource file (*.rc) node containing a dialogbox, as well as the code/function that calls the dialog resource in a dll-target project. How do I call this dialogbox from an exe file (with a winmain) function without having to put the dialog resource in the exe project's resource and use the dialog resource from the dll itself?

You can use the LoadLibrary() function to get a handle to the DLL's instance and pass it to the DialogBox() function.
