I know little about Win32, but Excite found: 

   http://www.vcdj.com/vcdj/jul97/win32_17.htm

   "Several compilers implement automatic thread-local storage management.
    For Microsoft C, this is done by adding the thread attribute to a
    variable declaration like so: 

    __declspec(thread) LPTSTR buffer; 

    ...
   This is a Microsoft-specific extension and may not be supported in all compilers."

Hope this helps.
