Default DLL vs ShellExecute()

Can someone explain to me why ShellExecute() will not start an executable if a call to the ShellExecute function has been coded to reside within my custom DLL?

All other functions work except ShellExecute and MessageBox. Is there a way to build a DLL that launches an exe? ShellExecute and MessageBox work great if compiled into an exe, but why not complied into a DLL?
