What's a good memory leak tool?

P: n/a
We're doing some development in VS .NET C++ and want to purchase a tool for
memory leak detection and related activities. Any recommendations?

Compuware's pro / enterprise package has this kind of functionality
http://www.compuware.com/products/de...er/default.htm
Glowcode also produce a bound checker, memory leak detector etc
(www.glowcode.com).
I think we evaluated the Compuware one, but it was beyond my budget. We're
using Glowcode's profiler (which is a different product) and it's pretty
good, haven't tried their leak detector software.

Download latest WinDbg from this site:
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtoo...nstallx86.mspx
and look documentation for UMDH (there is documentation on the
support.Microsoft.com either).
Do not forget set up environment variable as described here:
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/DevToo...g/symbols.mspx

Good luck.

Vladimir.
