    Is it possible to write non-blocking calls (calls that don't wait for the called function to finish before moving on?) within VB?

    Nope
    Use
    writing software in C++ is like driving rivets into steel beam with a toothpick.
    writing haskell makes your life easier:
    reverse (p (6*9)) where p x|x==0=""|True=chr (48+z): p y where (y,z)=divMod x 13
    To throw away OOP for low level languages is myopia, to keep OOP is hyperopia. To throw away OOP for a high level language is insight.

    Ok, if i pass a hDC to a C++ DLL, will it be able to use that to alter a picture box from within the VB form? (forcing me to write a non-blocking call in C)

    Yes if you refresh the picturebox. since the DC is attached to the bitmap you have in the picturebox.
