My project need use a exe(statically linked MFC) load a dll(statically linked MFC),
and create a CDHtmlDialog in the dll.
I add a CDHtmlDialog to the DLL, "class DHtmlDialogTest : public CDHtmlDialog"
and create dialog at DLL's export function,
"DHtmlDialogTest .Create(IDD_DHtmlDialogTest , CWnd::GetDesktopWindow());"

But when excute DHtmlDialogTest .Create(IDD_DHtmlDialogTest , CWnd::GetDesktopWindow());
enter "dlgdhtml.cpp"'s function "CDHtmlDialog::OnInitDialog()"
at following code inside "CDHtmlDialog::OnInitDialog()"

if (m_pBrowserApp == NULL)
     // create the control window
     m_wndBrowser.CreateControl(CLSID_WebBrowser, NULL,
                  WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD, rectClient, this, AFX_IDC_BROWSER);
     lpUnk = m_wndBrowser.GetControlUnknown();
     if (FAILED(lpUnk->QueryInterface(IID_IWebBrowser2, (void**) &m_pBrowserApp)))
      return TRUE;

it will GPF which is get a unhandle exception when excute  
if (FAILED(lpUnk->QueryInterface(IID_IWebBrowser2, (void**) &m_pBrowserApp)))

Maybe because I can't load the resource?
Because I trce the call stack, when enter afxwin2.inl excute following code:
CDialog::Create(ATL_MAKEINTRESOURCE(nIDTemplate), pParentWnd);
ATL_MAKEINTRESOURCE(nIDTemplate) return a bad ptr,

But I can create a CDialog in the same DLL, only can't create a CDHtmlDialog,

Or is there any thing I need to aware when use a exe(statically linked MFC) load a dll(statically linked MFC),
and create a CDHtmlDialog in the dll?

have you tried that by using CreateDialogIndirect() instead if CDialog::Create() ?

Further explain:

Origin problem will GPF which is get a unhandle exception when excute
if (FAILED(lpUnk->QueryInterface(IID_IWebBrowser2, (void**) &m_pBrowserApp)))

the m_wndBrowser is NULL and lpUnk is also NULL.

1. I can create a CDialog in the same DLL above, only can't create a CDHtmlDialog.

2. If use a exe(dynamically link MFC) load a dll(Extension DLL use MFC),
it can do the same thing create a CDHtmlDialog in the dll fine.
