And Then It Dawned On Me

Yesterday's problem turned out to be due to a piece of code that one of my coworkers had inserted that prevented the resource DLL that contains our strings from correctly inserting itself into the DLL chain that MFC searches in order to find the right resources. The code worked correctly in the EXE environment, but was fatal in the COM DLL environment that I'm working in right now.

It only took a day and a half to figure that out. *sigh*
