Choose Problem

To start exploring a detected memory error:

Understand Summary Window Panes

Summary window


The Summary window is the starting point for managing result data. It groups problems into problem sets and then prioritizes the problem sets by severity and size.


Think of the Problems pane as a to-do list. Start at the top and work your way down. Try viewing the problems in various problem sets by clicking the corresponding Expand control icon.


The Code Locations pane shows the code location summary, surrounding source code snippet, call stack, and thread and timeline information for all code locations in one or all occurrences of the problem(s) highlighted in the Problems pane.

Choose a Problem

When you are finished experimenting, double-click the data row for the Memory leak problem set to display the Sources window, which provides more visibility into the cause of the error.
