Semaphore question in User mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • What happens when i am releasing a semaphore, without actually calling WaitForSingleObject on the seamphore. The Semaphore was created in one thread and i am simply releasing the semaphore without waiting for it in another thread.

  • you are releasing a count on the semaphore which you never acquired? The resulting behavior is undefined
