modem dialog

i need to activate the modem select dialog as it appear under:
control panel\modem.
(i mean the select modem dialog from the ones that is used in my machine)
how do i do that?

i found in one of your answer a way to send a WM_CPL_LAUNCH
to the windows control panel and one of the parameters should
be the name on the application i want to be started (in my case
it's the 'Modems').
could u please tell me how it is really done?

I guess ::SendMessage(0,WM_CPL_LAUNCH,yourwindowhandle,(LPARAM)"Modems")

But I am not sure if the target window 0 is acceptable , or if the section is really "Modems".
