You can't parent a dialog in one process to another in another process. This isn't possible. The most you can do is position it by getting the currently active window, getting it's position information, and then update your window's position (which should have Form.TopLevel set to true) so that it appears to be parented.

To get the foreground window, P/Invoke GetForegroundWindow (not GetActiveWindow, which gets the active window attached to the calling thread). You can then P/Invoke GetWindowRect using the IntPtr (representing the HWND) returned from GetForegroundWindow to get the coordinates of the foreground window and site your window accordingly.
