Dont think of a mailslot as a file.....you dont need any form of file pointer...

How to i get it to just stay at the begining of the mailslot and read and wright there? I add the source code so you can take a look at it and see whats wrong
From my code...
You just call the GetMailSlotInfo() api, and if there is no message, you issue a continue statement to jump to the top of the loop....If there is a message, you call ReadFile().......this then takes the message and there's no need to mess with a pointer....
&dwCount,&dwTimeout);//See what is in the mailslot
continue;//If nothing, wait half second & retry
szReadBuff[dwRead] = NULL;
BTW..I used the Sleep() because I was in a seperate thread to do this, and the loop it existed in had no other purpose....you may wish to ommit this as you are in the message loop as it will not be good for the timeing of your prog
