https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winbase/nf-winbase-createnamedpipea (CreateNamedPipeA function)

Parameters -> lpName says: "The unique pipe name. This string must have the following form: \.\pipepipename"

Wrong. The string must have the form \\.\pipe\pipename, that is two backslashes - dot - backslash - pipe - backslash - pipename.

Same issue with TransactNamedPipe function (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/namedpipeapi/nf-namedpipeapi-transactnamedpipe), twice in the Remarks section. The Windows 10, version 1709 hint at the end gets it almost right, a backslash is missing.

Refer to ConnectNamedPipe function (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/namedpipeapi/nf-namedpipeapi-connectnamedpipe), Windows 10 hint at the end of the Remarks section for the correct syntax. Throughout that article, however, the links to CreateFile and OVERLAPPED are 404.
