The FindResour() is returning NULL and i got the error "Cannot find the resource".
The code is
   HRSRC hRes=FindResource(hInst,TEXT("IDI_TEXT1"),TEXT("TEXT"));
My resource is a text file of type"TEXT"

Thanx in advance

Try to see what error code you get

HRSRC hRes=FindResource(hInst,TEXT("IDI_TEXT1"),TEXT("TEXT"));
DWORD dwErr = GetLastResult();

and then find it's meaning by Error Lookup tool in VC++.
Is hInst properly set?

I see from your grade (B) that you are not pleased with the solution. Do you need to elaborate more?
