    crashes on some systems.. please help

    i've run out of ideas.. i'm working with a Tab Control and on some systems the program crashes when accessing a global HWND[2] for the two dialogs i use here. on my system it's all ok.

    anyone know whats wrong here?

    HWND phDlg[2];
    // ...
    // in the dialog procedure i catch WM_INITDIALOG and initialize phDlg.
    // hwndDlg is the handle of the dialog the tab is placed on:
    phDlg[0] = CreateDialog(hInst, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_TABDIALOG1), hwndDlg, (DLGPROC)TabDlg1Proc);
    phDlg[1] = CreateDialog(hInst, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_TABDIALOG2), hwndDlg, (DLGPROC)TabDlg2Proc);
    // then i catch TCN_SELCHANGING and TCN_SELCHANGE and show the appropriate dialog:
    int nCurSel = TabCtrl_GetCurSel(hwndDlg);
    if ((nCurSel >= 0) && (nCurSel <= 1))
    	ShowWindow(phDlg[nCurSel], SW_SHOW);
    it works fine when i pass hwndDlg (from the parent window) to ShowWindow() which doesnt make sense of course but helped to localize the error. however, phDlg[0] or phDlg[1] as argument causes the app to crash - on some systems.

    are you checking to make sure CreateDialog returned valid handles?
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
