I am using visual C++ 2003 in windows XP. I need semaphore in my program, what API should I use for that? What is the most updated and recomended API I should use? Is semaphore not a standard user program service in windows? What should I use instead? Thanks in advance.

Another question, don't I need to release the HANDLE somewhere? how do I release it?

You can release it with CloseHandle.
