If I want my Event to be shared among the processes, I create a named Event object.
What has the name to look like?
Does it have to be an ASCII string or can I use any null terminated array of BYTE?
E.G.
EventName DB 1,2,3,0

The name is limited to MAX_PATH characters and can contain any character except the backslash path-separator character (\). Name comparison is case sensitive.

It's oficial, but i can't see any reason to break this rule.
