I don't understand just what you mean. There's no problem with having several processes launched from the same EXE binary - try using Process Explorer instead of Task Manager and check out the Shared Bytes counter. If you have several processes that share the same DLL/EXE binaries, Windows will try to share as many as those bytes between processes as possible - assuming that they're static code segments that can safely be shared.RoyalSchrubber said:hah, I hope they will allow multiple processes (separated virtual address spaces) in a sigle application (exe binary) in Windows 7.PaoloM said:*snip*
It's kinda silly when you see 4 processes in task manager for 3 tabs open in a single IE8 window. Besides, multiple address spaces have tons of uses..
You see 4 different processes in the Task Manager because, well, Task Manager shows all running processes. There's no sense in merging them together.
