I use the following code repeatedly to get responses from a server but the object leaks memory a lot. Does anybody have a clue why and how to fix it?

Daniel.


CComPtr<IXMLHTTPRequest> xml_Request;
HRESULT hr = xml_Request.CoCreateInstance( L"Msxml2.XMLHTTP.3.0", NULL, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER  );
if( hr != S_OK )
{
     AfxMessageBox("Could not create the XMLDOMHttpRequest object");
     return;
}

hr = xml_Request->open( L"POST", _bstr_t( (LPCTSTR)strUrl.c_str() ), _variant_t(false),
_variant_t(""), _variant_t(""));
if(hr != S_OK)
{
      AfxMessageBox("Error open connnection");
     return;
}

hr = xml_Request->send(vOpt);
if(hr != S_OK)
{
     AfxMessageBox("Error posting");
     return;
}

How do you use 'vOpt'?

Sorry Left that one out.
It is declared as follow:
_variant_t vOpt("");

Thanks.

are you re-using the same "xml_request" object each time or do you re-instatiate it, without killing the old object?

I tries it using the whole block and only from "xml_Request->open()" but no luck. The memory leak only occurs after the 30th or so loop.

CComPtr do call the Release() method after it goes out of scope.

Thanks.
Daniel.

I think you forgot this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days.

I am not sure what to suggest here. Could somebody please shed some light on the value of this thread ... otherwise it was suggested to delete and refund.
