SchedulerType Enumeration

Used by the SchedulerKind policy to describe the type of threads that the scheduler should utilize for underlying execution contexts. For more information on available scheduler policies, see PolicyElementKey Enumeration.

enum SchedulerType;




Indicates an explicit request of regular Win32 threads.


User-mode schedulable (UMS) threads are not supported in the Concurrency Runtime in Visual Studio 2012. Using UmsThreadDefault as a value for the SchedulerType policy will not result in an error. However, a scheduler created with that policy will default to using Win32 threads.
