    About file opening

    Hi I was doing this proj where i Found something weird there was a file that I needed to access that I created but the weird thing is if I accessed it by CreateFile() API it would return INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE and there was no bug's in the code but when I sleep() few mili sec about 100 or something does that mean that I have to wait little bit until I access files in windows or thats something on my system .. ?

    Wow!
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If you want a decent answer, post some ACTUAL code that replicates the problem.

    Not some massive run-on sentence about your toe-nail clippings.
