It seems as if the Winsock control (mswinsck) that comes with Visual Basic 5.0 Professional eats memory when loading and unloading a control.
*** But may be I am doing something wrong! Can anyone tell me? ***
1. create a Winsock control to a form and give it the index 0
2. create a test program as follows:
text1.text = str(count)
count = count + 1
After about 10000 times my computer hangs completely!
The OS I use is Windows-NT 3.51 (service pack 5) or 4.0 (sp. 1). You can also watch the memory (pagefile usage) shrink with the Windows-NT diagnostics utility.
