    INVALID_HANDLE on DuplicateHandle of current Process

    Hello:

    I've googled about this and I'm still struggling, I need a Handle of the actual process, not the pseudo Handle returned by GetCurrentThread(), but the actual one.

    I've learned that I need to get the pseudo handle, and then use the DuplicateHandle to get the real one. So I did this but unfortunately I keep getting the error 16 - INVALID_HANDLE:

    HANDLE _handle = GetCurrentThread();
    HANDLE _handle2;
    bool x = DuplicateHandle(_handle,_handle,_handle,
    &_handle2,
    GENERIC_WRITE|GENERIC_READ,
    TRUE,DUPLICATE_SAME_ACCESS);

    if(!x)
    {
    cout << "Last Error: " << GetLastError() << endl;
    }

    I think the error might be around the _handle,_handle_handle, but I'm still stuck, any ideas?

    Greetings

    Alejandro
