AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState( ));
This swaps the current module state with the state returned from AfxGetStaticModuleState until the end of the current scope.

If all your resources lies in the single DLL you can even change the default handle to the DLL handle with the help of AfxSetResourceHandle function.

Thanks very much for this comment. It help me to think about my ideals.

Tks again and pls keep posting.
