Most applications save session-to-session data in the registry.  Before your dialog app exits, it should write all of the data to be saved to it's own registry key.  The recommended placed is to create your own like:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\YOUR COMPANY NAME\YOUR APPLICATION

if the data is system (i.e. all users) wide or in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\YOUR COMPANY NAME\YOUR APPLICATION

below either of these keys, you can store whatever data you need to preserve.

When your app starts up again, go back and read the data from the registry and stuff it back into your dialog.

See the docs on:

RegOpenKeyEx()
RegQueryValueEx()
RegCreateKeyEx()
RegCloseKey()
RegSetValueEx()
