Windows 8 RTM memory leak running Visual Studio 2012 Simulator in Lenovo X201 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I got a memory Leak when I run the simulator of Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate to debug Windows Store applications. Basically my 8GB of RAM disappear few seconds after simulator starts. Does it happen for anyone else?

    An important detail is that simulator is not actually taking the memory, according to the Task Manager, so I think a driver must do it. Maybe Video driver? And the memory is not released even closing simulator and Visual Studio.


    Lenovo X201

    Graphics card: Intel

    Graphics card driver: Intel (R) Graphics (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)

    Lenovo has not released drivers for Windows 8 and Lenovo X201

    OS and software:

    Windows 8 Enterprise RTM

    Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate

  • I have exactly the same issue recently (not happened before, not sure if recent windows update broke anything), but my env is Win8.1, VS2013 (with update 1 or update 2 CTP). Also Lenovo but T410.
