  • Hi Anant,

    Did you tried Resource Leak Detector, what are the results?

    I read  in the below link that Resource Leak Detector has been replaced by AppVerifier in WEC 7.

    Please check the below link.

    You can download and try AppVerifier from here:

    There is one more tool called DevHealth which is a Memory Usage tool. You can find this tool in the below path

  • Hello Ashfaque,

    Thanks for your reply..!

    I have tried using devhealth, but I am getting error "Failed to load devhealthdll.dll" I have copied both file exe and dll in windows directory.

    do you know why this error is popping out ? Is there any dependency ? BTW I have command processor and standard shell included in the image.

    In case Of Resource Leak detector,

    It showed me some list of allocations, its address and size but don't know how to exact interpret the results ? are these address are corrupted heap or hot spot ???
