I want to use mscomm ctrl but my application does not have a dialog or a GUI.
One way to use is to have a hidden dialog and embed the control in that. But I am looking for a solution without having to use a hidden dialog.

I don't quite understand -- this sounds like you need the functionality of some common control without displaying it. I don't think that is good practice.
Anyway: you need to call InitCommonControls[Ex] and create the control with a call to CreateWindow[Ex]. You need a valid window handle to pass as hWndParent in the creation process, so you need to create a window anyway. If everything went fine so far, call ShowWindow( SW_HIDE )

Really, I don't know what you're trying to do, so please be a bit more specific.
