Default Custom DLL can't call an EXE?

Can someone explain to me why ShellExecute() will not do launch a windows program if I place ShellExecute within my custom DLL? All of my other functions work except ShellExecute and MessageBox. Is there a way to build a DLL that launches an exe on the client? ShellExecute and MessageBox work great if compiled into an exe, but why not complied into a DLL?
