Tips & Tricks:

Please add some!

Sample Code:

C# Signature:

    var cntx = new CONTEXT();
    LDT_ENTRY ldt;

    cntx.ContextFlags = CONTEXT_ALL;

    if ( !GetThreadContext( GetCurrentThread(), ref cntx ) )
        throw new Exception();

    if ( !GetThreadSelectorEntry( GetCurrentThread(), cntx.SegDs, out ldt ) )
        throw new Exception();
