question LeakDiag/DebugDiag for Windows Server 2008

I was wondering if anyone knows about a program similar to LeakDiag that will work with Windows Server 2008. I found a Microsoft product, DebugDiag, that works and is tested on Vista Ultimate, but is untested on Server 2008. Does anyone know off hand if it works well with Server 2008 (if at all) and if not, is there a replacement program for it?
Thanks

Re: LeakDiag/DebugDiag for Windows Server 2008

Have you tried using LeakDiag on your Windows Server 2008? Because in my opinion it should work with Windows Server 2008. Also according to Microsoft, "LeakDiag is a set of tools that helps developers, support professionals, and information technology (IT) personnel diagnose memory leaks, fragmentation, and other memory-related issues in applications or services that are on computers running Microsoft Windows NT? Server 4.0, Windows? 2000 Server, Windows XP, and Windows Server? 2003."

It doesn't work with server 2008. A friend said that even though DebugDiag is not tested for Windows Server 2008, since it works with vista, it should work. I am going to try that route and post my findings. Thanks.

Re: LeakDiag/DebugDiag for Windows Server 2008

Ok, so DebugDiag didn't do exactly what I wanted. I want a program like LeakDiag that can show a stack trace that lead to the leaked memory. Does anyone know of a program that will do this on windows server 2008?

Re: LeakDiag/DebugDiag for Windows Server 2008

Ok, so I ran in to a Microsoft VBScript runtime error while using DebugDiag on Server 2008 on a simple memory leak test program...Found a fix for it at
http://www.pretentiousname.com/debugdiag_fix/index.html
So DebugDiag will run on Windows Server 2008. I was Wondering if anyone has used the program to get a stack trace for a leak - or know of an equivalent program to leakDiag that will run on server 2008.

Thanks for your help.
