Congrats.

The HANDLE that you get back from _beginthreadex() should eventually be cleaned up with CloseHandle(). There is a resource that is backed by the HANDLE and you should clean that up when you are done with it.

The HANDLE remains a "waitable object" even after the thread exits. That way, you can do a WaitForSingleObject() on the HANDLE to either wait for the thread to finish or to test for completion (by adding a timeout value to the wait). Once the thread exits, the HANDLE becomes "signaled" and that will satisfy any wait, even one that comes along after the thread completes. That's why you have to eventually close it.
