[MFC] Dialog not Showing

All~~

This is driving me nuts for a day now...
A have an extension DLL which contains several dialogs. The first dialog I wrote and tested worked just fine.
I have inserted now a second (modal) dialog but for some reason beyond my comprehension (hence this post) it won't show up.
The return value of DoModal is of course -1, but I can't find additional information about this.
I've checked and double checked the resource identifiers and also did the trick of changing the resource handle at dialog construction but nothing 'appens.

I am really, really annoyed by this. One dialog shows up and the other one wont. Basically, there is NO difference between the two.

Any ideas anybody???

Oh, for God's Sakes!

I got it... In the second dialog I was using a rich-edit control which failed to be created. After forcing the cryptic "No Fail Create" flag of the dialog I discovered the problem.

After placing in the dialog constructor the AfxInitRichEdit() call things FINALLY started moving.

The weird thing though is that the MSDN states on AfxInitRichEdit() :
<<If you use rich edit via CRichEditCtrl, CRichEditView, or CRichEditDoc, you don't need to call this function.>>

Things seem to be different when using an Extension DLL... Or am I missing something?

Thanks anyway to anybody who read this post and thought about it.
