RSA Data Protection Manager C# client for Windows
IssueUsing Visual Studio to debug your application you may notice a thread in the "Worker Thread" category with a thread name of "Win32 Thread" when calling the R_KM_CTX_new_from_file API. 
The DPM client uses the Windows API gethostname() from the WinSock subset of operations, and it is the gethostname() API that creates a thread and leaves it running.
There is no workaround to terminate this thread, you can safely ignore it.
