The IMC component created by this function is initialized with zero.

An IME monitors the user's keystrokes, anticipates the characters the user may want, and presents a list of candidate characters from which to choose.

An IMC is a structure, maintained by the IME and used by IME windows, that contains information about the status of the IME. By default, the system creates and assigns an IMC to a thread if it calls a function that requires the use of an IMC. Within the thread, this default input context is a shared resource and is associated with each newly created window. An IMC requires considerable system resources, so use them judiciously.
