Hi All,

I am developing multithreaded / multiprocess application. I am invoking couple of processes  from my primary thread. I want to pass Handle of my parent process to my child process(Not as parameter). I am usaing CreatProcess() function to create a new process. So is there anyway through which I can pass parent's process handle to this new process.???

dipesh,

There are several ways to send a parent process handle to a child process. The easiest way that comes to mind is to save the parent handle and pass it as a command line parameter to the child process. Then, in the child process,  parse the command line for your handle. Another way includes making the handle an environment variable; the child inherits the parents environment vars. And finally, you could make a shared file or memory region that both could access and put the handle there.

Good Luck!
