Thanks Jacob, now I have some hope. At least part of the problem is that  I
have no docs on
creating Win32 resources.

WEDITRES generates this for a slider (trackbar) in a dialog box:

    CONTROL         "", DLGA_ALPHA, "", Trackbar | WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW |
                            WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, 203, 176, 223, 18

LRC spits out a number of "integer expected" and "control statement
expected". Guessing the problem
might be with the word 'Trackbar', I substitued a known style  - e.g.
TBS_HORZ.. This did allow
LRC to compile without error, but the dialog box wouldn't open.

Perhaps all I need is a working script. I could manage from there.

         Thanks for your help,
