A little mroe details and sample code (also attached below) here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366551(VS.85).aspx ("Creating Named Shared Memory")

Also take a look at the article at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/threads/sharedmemipc.aspx ("Interprocess Communication using Shared Memory") which cokmes wit hfull source code and explains that issue in detail.
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#define BUF_SIZE 256
TCHAR szName[]=TEXT("Global\\MyFileMappingObject");
TCHAR szMsg[]=TEXT("Message from first process.");
 
int _tmain()
{
   HANDLE hMapFile;
   LPCTSTR pBuf;
 
   hMapFile = CreateFileMapping(
                 INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE,    // use paging file
                 NULL,                    // default security 
                 PAGE_READWRITE,          // read/write access
                 0,                       // max. object size 
                 BUF_SIZE,                // buffer size  
                 szName);                 // name of mapping object
 
   if (hMapFile == NULL) 
   { 
      _tprintf(TEXT("Could not create file mapping object (%d).\n"), 
             GetLastError());
      return 1;
   }
   pBuf = (LPTSTR) MapViewOfFile(hMapFile,   // handle to map object
                        FILE_MAP_ALL_ACCESS, // read/write permission
                        0,                   
                        0,                   
                        BUF_SIZE);           
 
   if (pBuf == NULL)

   CopyMemory((PVOID)pBuf, szMsg, (_tcslen(szMsg) * sizeof(TCHAR)));
    _getch();
 
   UnmapViewOfFile(pBuf);
 
   CloseHandle(hMapFile);
 
   return 0;
}
