Debugging Tools for Windows


user mode
Applications and subsystems run within Windows in user mode. Processes that run in user mode do so within their own virtual address spaces. They are restricted from gaining direct access to many parts of the system, including system hardware, memory that was not allocated for their use, and other portions of the system that might compromise system integrity. Because processes that run in user mode are effectively isolated from the system and other user-mode processes, they cannot interfere with these resources.

User-mode processes can be grouped in the following categories:

user-mode debugging
A debugger session in which the target is running in user mode.

user-mode target
See target application.
