Processes (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)
Keep the following points in mind about processes:
Windows Embedded CE has a theoretical limit of 32,000 processes.
A process starts with a single thread, often called the primary thread, that provides the resources that are required to run an application.
Windows Embedded CE creates a primary thread when the loader calls the WinMain function.
A process can create additional threads as needed.
The number of additional threads a process can create is limited by the amount of RAM available on the device. The kernel itself can address 512 MB of physical memory.
In Windows Embedded CE, threads migrate between process slots during system calls. For more information, see System Calls.
