Hi:
   A thread handle becomes signalled when the thread terminates.  So, to wait for nCount-many threads to ALL terminate, you write
WaitForMultipleObjects(nCount,lpHandles,TRUE,INFINITE);

Here, lpHandles is a pointer to an array of thread handles.  The 3rd parameter being TRUE means to wait for all the threads to complete (if it were set to FALSE that would mean stop waiting when any one of the 3 threads completes).

Hi:
   You would define the array of handles as, for example
#define nCount 5  //5 threads
HANDLE threadHandles[nCount];
....
WaitForMultipleObjects(nCount,threadHandles,TRUE,INFINITE);

Hai,
  You can use the API
WaitForMultipleObjects () function
with the last parameter as INFINITE to wait until all the threads can finish their job.
