Using windbg, got the list of dlls with load count by
!dlls command. Observed that the load count is
0x0000ffff for many loaded dlls.
Is that a default value ?
Is that mean anything else ?
0x00262fa8: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ole32.dll Base 0x774e0000 EntryPoint 0x774fd0b9 Size 0x0013d000 Flags 0x80084006` LoadCount 0x0000ffff TlsIndex 0x00000000 LDRP_STATIC_LINK LDRP_IMAGE_DLL LDR**strong text**P_ENTRY_PROCESSED LDRP_PROCESS_ATTACH_CALLED
The load count for a DLL is a 16-bit value. If that value, treated as a signed short, is -1 (0xfffff) it indicates the DLL is statically linked, otherwise it’s dynamically loaded.
