A tool for easy detection of memory leaks in any Windows application.

editor's review




Windows Leaks Detector is a lightweight and portable piece of software that, as the name says, lets you identify memory leaks of any open application. It is simple to use.

Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can simply extract the program files to any location on the hard drive, and run the executable file effortlessly.

As an alternative, you can save Windows Leaks Detector to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer without prior setup operations.

What should be mentioned is that this tool does not work with the Windows Registry or leave files behind on the hard drive after you remove it.

The interface of Windows Leaks Detector is represented by a small, regular window with a plain layout. The "what you see is what you get" concept clearly applies to the utility, since there are no other options or configuration settings available, aside from the ones visible in the main window.

Starting and stopping the monitoring task is done with the simple click of a button. You can attach process IDs, specify the output directory and file name of the log file (TXT format), include the memory content, set the number of stacks, as well as establish the number of the heaviest stacks for the break points' activation.

Windows Leaks Detector is very light on the system resources, as it requires a minimum amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and works well, without hanging, crashing or popping up error dialogs; we haven't encountered any problems throughout our evaluation. On the downside, Windows Leaks Detector has not been updated for a long time.
