your help will be appreciated
I'm using VC++6.0 on Windows98
can't we track the virtual memory......or is there no way for doing it
can u explain me somewhat more about this problem
anyways thanx for the consideration
yep, it's all windows api. check the msdn, there is an article on how windows handle virtual memory. there is an article about it.
the way it's done is that there is an api function and a standard win-api structure. u pass a pointer to the structure in the function and it fills it up.

check article in msdn for it. sorry i cant help with more details, i dont have vcc on this machine...
ok man. here is your info:
Memory Management Structures
hope it helps.
