How to invoke User Browse dlg (as seen in DCOMCNFG)

Hi all...

I'd like to invoke that handy user browse dialog in NT, as seen in DCOMCNFG (Run DCOMCNFG, click Properties, select Identity tab, select "This User", click Browse) and in general on NT when you want to browse for users (share a drive and select the permissions button).

Running Depends on DCOMCNFG shows that it links to NETUI2.DLL, which exports among other things: OpenUserBrowser, EnumUserBrowserSelection, and CloseUserBrowser.  Searching MSDN and the net have turned up nil, and I'd hate to waste the time coding this dialog when NT so thoughtfully included one.

Has anyone figured out how to call this dialog, or how I might find out how to call this dialog?  Thanks in advance...

The dialog provided by Windows NT is not reusable. For now, you need to write your own.

Thanks for the reply, Mike.  My continuing searches have been fruitless.

I don't know if MS plans to include this type of functionality in the future, but it would be nice if they did.  I'll tell you why: DCOMCNFG is not an install friendly tool.  I'm configuring a COM server to "RunAs" a specific user (which I can already do progmatically), but I'd like to give the installer a nice UI.  It'd be nice to have one...
