Module DLLs in Virtual Memory Slots 60 and 61

As of Windows Mobile 6.5 virtual memory slots 60 and 61 can handle MODULE DLLs as well as FILE DLLs. The benefits of this are:

  • Memory usage of both code and data can be reduced in slot 0, the current-process slot, thus improving stability.

  • OEM design is simplified because all DLLs can be listed in the MODULES section.

  • Performance can be improved because MODULE DLLs are loaded faster than FILE DLLs (because address fix up during loading is eliminated).
