  • The unit of scheduling in NT is the thread, so there isn't a process dispatcher that 'runs' processes. There is a thread scheduler, however, and that can be found in the base\ntos\ke directory. Using findstr on 'Ready' should point at the interesting places to look in the sources.

     

    I hope this helps.
