Helps me so much to find any memory leaks in my application. Actually this plugin has to be included in Visual Studio as default.

Started application crashed with a callstack showing vld after only 15 seconds. 2.4rc2 works fine.

Found one of my big memory leaks but my memory usage still grows as my code runs.
