VLD2.0b doesn't work

Oct 18, 2010 at 10:32 AM

Hi all:

    My environment is VLD2.0b + VS2008 +WinXP SP3. I have setup the VLD2.0b correctly in VS2008, but when I run this demo program ( It is only a CONSOLE demo program), it say that no memory leak founded.

#include "vld.h"

void main(void)
    void *pStr = malloc(10);

I am sure that VLD2.0b is working, because when I set SelfTest = on, I could found the memory leak information in output window. But why it can't detect memory leak on my demo program ? The buffer of 'pStr' is definitely leaked.  Can anybody tell me why?

    Thanks and best regards.

Did you check whether VLD is enabled from the start? (another option in vld.ini).

I assume since the selftest is running that you're running in Debug mode?

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, the VLD option is on in the vld.ini (VLD = on). I only want to make sure that VLD is running when I enable the SelfTest option. And I am sure that VLD is definitely working.  My demo program is really in debug mode, I run this demo program step by step, and until it ended, I only get these info:
