    Did you look here.

    Try:
    Code:
    //...
    //call once
    if(!LoadLibrary("riched20.dll")) //newest ver is msftedit.dll
        MessageBox(NULL,"Could not load riched20.dll!","Error!",MB_OK|MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
    //...
    HWND riched = CreateWindowEx(0,
                                   RICHEDIT_CLASS,
                                   "",
                                   WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|WS_VSCROLL|WS_HSCROLL|         
                                   ES_MULTILINE|ES_AUTOHSCROLL,
                                   5,
                                   35,
                                   GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN)/2,
                                   GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN)-235,
                                   hwnd,NULL,hinst,0);
    //...
