I've been searching for a memory leak detection tool for windows, something similar to valgrind under Linux, but all tools that i find cost, or just have free trials. Does anyone know a FREE memory leak detection tool for windows ?

get the source code for vangrind and compile it yourself with a windows compiler ??? I don't know how difficult that might be.

Check this:

It is free with full source code, so you may tune it for your own needs. Also it integrates with MSVS.
