CreateProcess CreatePipe - gather Stderr output not working

Im trying to create a process and send the output to a pipe which I
read after the
process runs so I can see whats wrong.  In this case Im trying to call
it with pscp
(which is why I hardcoded the error Im looking for btw).  Ive tried
googling this and
Ive seen many variations of this code, but so far I cant get it to
work the way I was
expecting it to.

In my debug output, ReadFile Avail <0> is as far as it gets and then
I know its hanging because when I do it in the command line It also
hangs with the
string Im looking for, "Server refused our key", but I cant see why
the following code
isnt getting my Stderr output as I want.  And yes, Im a newbie still.

Id appreciate any help on getting this to work and bulletproofing it
more also.

bool doSystem(LPSTR cmd)
	HANDLE read_stderr, wr_stderr;

        STARTUPINFO si;
	ZeroMemory(&si, sizeof(si));
	si.cb = sizeof(si);	// Must set the size of structure

	sa.nLength = sizeof(SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES);
       sa.bInheritHandle = FALSE;
       sa.lpSecurityDescriptor = NULL;

       if (!CreatePipe(&read_stderr, &wr_stderr, &sa, 0))  //create
stderr pipe
 		dmsg(TERR, "CreatePipe %d", GetLastError());
                return false;

      si.wShowWindow = SW_HIDE;
      si.hStdError = wr_stderr;

	BOOL ret = CreateProcess(NULL, cmd, NULL, NULL, FALSE,
                            CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE, //CREATE_NO_WINDOW,
			NULL, NULL, &si, &pi);
	if (!ret)
		dmsg(TERR, "CreateProcess FAILED");
                return false;
	//WaitForSingleObject(pi.hProcess, INFINITE);

	dmsg(TINFO, "Process Started");

	char buf[MAX_BUF];
	DWORD bread, avail;

	if (!PeekNamedPipe(read_stderr, buf, MAX_BUF - 1, &bread, &avail,
		dmsg(TERR, "PeekNamedPipe stderr");
		dmsg(TINFO, "ReadFile Avail <%d>", avail);
		ReadFile(read_stderr, buf, 1023, &bread, NULL);
		dmsg(TINFO, "bread <%d>", bread);
		dmsg(TINFO, "BUF: <%s>", buf);
		if (bread > 5)
			if (!strcmp(buf, "Server refused our key"))
				dmsg(TERR, "Server refused our key");

	return true;

How to tell microsoft that Excel Union Operator doesn't always work

Archiving not working properly.
New to this Outlook stuff so be gentle... Partner has Outlook 2000 a/c which is getting slow and beginning to lock up, presumably through a lack of attention to archiving. I understood that the main pst could be up to 2gig in this version but am not sure if, when the user also has the archive folders showing in the folder list, the size of the archive pst has to be included in an overall 2gig 'working margin'. I ask this, because when I tried to 'shave the inbox' a year at a time say, I found that the archive.pst only filled up to 738695, and then seemed to stick even ...

vlookup not working (active)
I have a random problem with vlookup that I've not been able to figure out. Sometimes when I try to lookup a value on a different workbook using vlookup, the formula disappears when I swich to the other workbook.

Cross-Reference Dialog Box No Longer Works Right
