"MapViewOfFile", does this function map a file into the virtual memory and return the base address of the mapped memory?? If yes, then the following code should output 0X400000, beacuse by default the exe is loaded at this location, but the output is 0X360000. Why?? Also when I try to print out the ImageBase entry in the optional header it prints out 0X400000???
if((hFile = CreateFile(TEXT("c:\\linked list.exe"),GENERIC_READ,FILE_SHARE_READ,NULL,OPEN_EXISTING,FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL,0)) == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
std::cout<<"unable to open";
if((hFileMapping = CreateFileMapping(hFile,NULL,PAGE_READONLY,0,0,NULL)) == 0)
std::cout<<"unable to open for mapping";
if((lpFileBase = MapViewOfFile(hFileMapping,FILE_MAP_READ,0,0,0))== 0)
std::cout<<"couldn't map view of file";
