    best windows profiler / leak detector?

    I believe I had a leak in some new code i wrote. I say " i believe " because I discovered it simply by logical inspection, and it was so small it never consumed noticeable amounts of memory in the task manager.

    while the fix was very simple, and i believe i have resolved it, i'd like to verify that empirically.

    i decided to try winleak, just because i like to support the open-source community, but not at the cost of ease of use or robustness. if anyone has suggestions, i'd like to know.

    thanks

    If your code is portable and you know how to use Linux...

    VMware player + Linux + valgrind . All are free (VMware only free as in beer, though).

    Unfortunately valgrind is one of those very few Linux programs that don't have a Windows port.
