    purify filesystemwatcher

    Hi guys, has anyone tried to purify filesystemwatcher code? I changed the common language runtime support to clr, but when running this i got a whole bunch of errors such as :

    Purify: While processing file C:\WINNT\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_32\mscor lib\9adb89fa22fd5b4ce433b5aca7fb1b07\mscorlib.ni.d ll:
    Error: Read only 0 bytes, out of 0, from file C:\WINNT\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_32\mscor lib\9adb89fa22fd5b4ce433b5aca7fb1b07\mscorlib.ni.d ll.

    i then set the common language runtime support to Pure MSIL Common Language Runtime Support (/clrure) , this got rid of the error message but i still do not get any results of memory leak issues displayed...

    any help you can give would greatly be appreciated,
    many thanks

    What do you expect Purify to do? The process size getting larger is probably not a leak, but the garbage collector at work. Did you include a real memory leak to check if Purify will find it?

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
