Multihread ansi C in visual Studio 6 on windows 7

Is it possible to multi thread an ansi C console application on a 32 bit windows 7 platform using _beginthread. Also is the entire application subject to the 2 gig memory/application of windows or can each thread allocate 2 gigs memory. I already have the 32 bit app but don't want to rewrite for 64 bit.

RE: Multihread ansi C in visual Studio 6 on windows 7

It is the whole application that is subject to the limit. The alternative is to use several 2Gb processes and make the app multiprocess instead of multithreaded. You'll need to swap mutexes for semaphores and global memory/critical regions for shared memory.
