Why didn't you read the help on this API as I suggested?

Solution 1

Check out the return codes secion of MSDN[^].
 
WAIT_FAILED (0xFFFFFFFF) The function has failed. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
Edit: To clarify, 0xFFFFFFFF == -1. Search google for signed/unsigned conversions if you don't know why.
 
If you go on to read GetLastError[^] you will come across something like this, which prints to the console the error code and associated message from the pages at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms681381(v=vs.85).aspx[^]
LPSTR szMessage;
DWORD nErr = GetLastError();
FormatMessage(FORMAT_MESSAGE_ALLOCATE_BUFFER | FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM | FORMAT_MESSAGE_IGNORE_INSERTS, NULL, nErr , MAKELANGID(LANG_NEUTRAL, SUBLANG_DEFAULT), (LPSTR)&szMessage, 0, NULL);
printf("Error 0x%08X (%u): %s\n", nErr, nErr, szMessage);
LocalFree(lpMsgBuf);

I am using Windows 7 OS 64 bit. CreateEvent returns 0x0 value to the handle.. How to implement Createevent in Windows? pls help me..

Perhaps you should learn MSDN. Check out http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=Rpz&q=CreateEvent%20site:msdn.microsoft.com&meta=
 
The same code can be used for printing the error associated with most Windows API functions.
I suspect your event name is malformed.

You need to show your code!
