Smart Device Functions:
This does not return a real handle, but a fixed value which is interpreted as the current, calling thread by any function which requires a thread handle. To get the real handle, you need to call GetCurrentThreadId, then OpenThread with the returned value along with the necessary permissions and what-not. Then close the handle when you're done with it.

An IntPtr is a pointer to a memory location (unmanaged) that adapts to the platform it is running on (64-bit, etc.) UNLIKE a standard int/Integer. You should always use this type for unmanaged calls that require it, even though an int will appear to work on your development machine.
