Is there a known problem where memory is allocated (via malloc) in a C Based DLL, passing the allocated memory address back to an appication thru a callback function setting the address as an LParam? What seems to be happening (using NT) is that MFC application crashes whenever the application frees the memory (LParam Address) using free.

The memory allocated in the DLL is from its own memory pool unless it is an MFC Extension DLL. You may want to see if you can free the memory inside the DLL.

Possible problem could be that MFC app and your C dll were compiled with different versions of C runtime library

Under debug - MFC uses a different malloc to that in release to enable it to do memory tracking. so mixing release and debug MFC builds can cause problems the same may also apply to 'vanilla' C dlls also.
