Detecting memory leaks using _CrtDumpMemoryLeaks

Hi,

This is my first time using the CRT library for detecting memory leaks, and I'm using Visual C++ 2003. As mentioned in this [link=http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/x98tx3cf.aspx]website[/link], I included the statements in my program

[code]#define _CRTDBG_MAP_ALLOC
#include
#include [/code]

followed by another header file that contains all other header files like stdio.h, windows.h and structure/function declarations. I also have

[code]_CrtDumpMemoryLeaks();[/code]

right before my function returns.

When I tried to build my program, I get the errors

[code]error C2059: syntax error: 'constant'
error C2059: syntax error: 'string'
error C2733: second C linkage of overloaded function '_aligned_malloc_dbg' not allowed[/code]

for the function prototypes in malloc.h, e.g.

[code]_CRTIMP void * __cdecl calloc(size_t, size_t);
_CRTIMP void * __cdecl free(void *);[/code]

etc.

How do I run the memory check debugger correctly?

Thank you.

Regards,
Rayne
