A target application, target computer, or dump target.
Sometimes referred to as thedebuggee .
- target application
An application that is being debugged in user-mode.
- target computer
A computer that is being debugged in kernel-mode.
- target ID
The unique identifier for a target.
- target process
In user-mode debugging, an operating system process that is part of the target application.
In kernel-mode debugging, the virtual process representing the kernel.
- target thread
In user-mode debugging, an operating system thread in the target application.
In kernel-mode debugging, a virtual thread representing a processor.
- thread context
The state preserved by Windows when switching threads. This is similar to the register context, except that there is some extra kernel-only processor state that is part of the register context but not the thread context. This extra state is available as registers during kernel-mode debugging.
For more information, see Scopes and Symbol Groups.
- transport layer
This controls communication between the host and target computers during remote debugging.
See bug check.
