The last few days I've been attempting to make a popup window with a menu outside of the WinMain class.

void CMFToolbar::GetQuote()
{

	InitCommonControls();

	if(m_pBrowser)
	{	
		WNDCLASSEX wc;
		HWND hwnd;
		MSG Msg;

		wc.cbSize		 = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);
		wc.style		 = 0;
		wc.lpfnWndProc	 = (WNDPROC)WndProc;
		wc.cbClsExtra	 = 0;
		wc.cbWndExtra	 = 0;
		wc.hInstance	 = GetModuleHandle(NULL);
		wc.hIcon		 = LoadIcon(_Module.GetResourceInstance(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_MYICON));
		wc.hCursor		 = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
		wc.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)(COLOR_WINDOW+1);
		wc.lpszMenuName  = (LPCTSTR)MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDR_MYMENU);
		wc.lpszClassName = g_szClassName;
		wc.hIconSm		 = (HICON)LoadImage(_Module.GetResourceInstance(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_MYICON), IMAGE_ICON, 16, 16, 0);

		if(!RegisterClassEx(&wc))
		{
			::MessageBox(NULL, "Window Registration Failed!", "Error!",
				MB_ICONEXCLAMATION | MB_OK);
		}

		hwnd = CreateWindowEx(
			WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,
			g_szClassName,
			"A Menu",
			WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW,
			CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, 240, 120,
			NULL, NULL, GetModuleHandle(NULL), NULL);

		if(hwnd == NULL)
		{
			::MessageBox(NULL, "Window Creation Failed!", "Error!",
				MB_ICONEXCLAMATION | MB_OK);
		}

		::ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_SHOW);
		::UpdateWindow(hwnd);

		while(GetMessage(&Msg, NULL, 0, 0) > 0)
		{
			TranslateMessage(&Msg);
			DispatchMessage(&Msg);
		}

	}
}

Everything works fine except for the line
wc.lpszMenuName = (LPCTSTR)MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDR_MYMENU);

The popup shows up, same with the icons. But the menu is missing. Anyone have any clue why this is? Thanks!
