Remember that the instance identifies the executable where the dialog box resource resides. Does it reside in the DLL or in the EXE?

hwnd should also be the appropriate window handle from your application.

The API help does not say that this cannot be done.

When i compile my dll, i compile with the dialog box resource, does this means that the dialog box resource reside in the dll?
The hwnd is the handle of the application which calling this dll. It this the right way?

You can check this by opening the DLL as resources in Studio.

It sounds as though you are doing things right to display the dialog - I can't really offer any other suggestions at the moment.
