Steps to reproduce

I have filed a case 116050614136891, Fixed memory leak issue when calling IWebBrowser2, I have Support person Rahul Dhongde talked to me says that this is Microsoft bug and asked me to file an bug.

I could not find the code that I have sent to Rahul, he must have it. What I do is that when I call iwebbroswer2 to open the web browser, when I close the browser, the memory did not get back to where before I called. When I call it again and again, the memory keep accumulating. I hope that this is clear to you. If I found the code, I’ll update the code and screen shot. Thanks.


Comments and activity

  • I have uploaded the code. Please run the program by click browser button to open the browser and then close the browser, and compare the memory that this program is consuming, When I open this window, the memory keep shooting up.

    I hope this helps. Thanks.
