DOC: _BlockOnID Function Uses the Block_Thread_Idle Option Flag


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Win32 Device Driver Kit (DDK) Windows 95


The VMMcall _BlockOnID function accommodates the Block_Thread_Idle Flags option. If Block_Thread_Idle is set, VMM considers the thread to be "idle" if it blocks. A VxD can use this option to improve overall system performance.

The Windows 95 DDK inadvertently omitted this _BlockOnID option.
