before the createdialog funct put this code & give a try ,
AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState( ));

Since the resource for dlg is at dll we should do the above.otherwise the resource is loaded from the exe .

Also verify whether the properties of the dialog which you are calling from dll has the visible checkbox checked.

What is g_hInst?

The problem might be with the call back function you have specified with CreateDialog?

Post the code it contains so that we can check for possible errors.

eek I think that you are doing this the HARD way.  Let me first try to get this straight.  You have a dll with a dialog in it that you want to display in your app?  Well thats easy.  Look at it this way that dialog that is in the dll is part of the app IF you link the dll's LIB file the your app.  then where ever you want to display the dialog from include the dialogs header file to the source and call the dialog just as if it were part of the app already.

MyDialog dlg;
dlg.DoModal();

Also there is one change that you have to make to the dialogs header file in the dll.  Below is the header file for a dialog in a dll that I made.

class AFX_EXT_CLASS CAnalogInputDefPropPage : public CPropertyPage

Can you see the difference?  Its that AFX_EXT_CLASS thing.  I cannot remember exactly what it does but it allows you to export and import functions.  I think.  You will have to use MSDN to verify that.  I can send you a dummy app that uses a dialog from a dll to show you it works.  just add your email.
