I have constructed an MFC DLL. It is having a single function DisplayDialog, which will display a dialog box.
To use this dll I have built a new Win32 Application project and add a file to the project which contains:
<#include windows.h>
extern int DisplayDialog();
main()
{
 DisplayDialog();
}
I have copied the dll in the windows system directory, and add the .lib file in the project link setting.
While building the project It is giving an error "unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16"
How to correct this.

when you create a win32 application you should use WinMain() and not main().

Try using the wizard for creating a simple hallow world win32 application. you'll find that a win32 application has some more default functions. Those functions deals with creating the main window and proccessing the windows messages sent to the app.

After you look at the source generated by the wizard, switch the "Hellow world" line with a call for your dialog.

At last you can gently clean up the functionalities you do not need.
