When I try to create a modal dialog box using DialogBox() macro, I get an error 1402 (Class not found). I created the DialogBox in resource editor and included the resource.h

My source:

#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include "resource.h"

HWND hDlg;
BOOL CALLBACK fnStatDlg(HWND, UINT, WPARAM, LPARAM);

int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
{

     HWND hWndOwner = GetDesktopWindow();
     int iVal=DialogBox(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_MAIN), NULL, (DLGPROC)fnStatDlg);
     int iErr=GetLastError();
     return 0;
}

BOOL CALLBACK fnStatDlg(HWND hDlg, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
     switch(uMsg)
     {
     case WM_INITDIALOG:
          return true;
     
     case WM_CLOSE:
          EndDialog(hDlg,0);
          return 0;
     }
     return false;
}

Hi

Your program is working correctly. Please check, whether you have added any common controls, like Rich Edit, Progress Bar etc. for which, you have to use the InitCommonControls() function before calling the DialogBox function. Please do check this. This might be the problem.

Your code seems to be ok.
the line hWndOwner ... seems to be redundant. you never use hWndOwner.
let me see your resource-file, please. maybe something wrong in it.
