Process Migration in Windows

cpp Botswana
  • 15 years ago

    Hello everybody.
    I'm working on a C program which uses Windows APIs to create a process, then pause it and read its memory. The values are stored in a file so that the process could be re-constructed and restart later using the checkpoint image. Basically a Process Checkpoint-ing system. The checkpoint image could be used to restart a process on a different workstation (Process Migration).
    My problem is, which parameters should I write to file? What about register, stacks, process context, and how do I save them?
