Is there a good tool for monitoring VB6 memory leaks

We have inherited an application that leaks memory (probably not destroying objects correctly).

We would like to be able to view the objects/handles in memory and in use by the application while it is running. We could then track down the problem.

This may not be possible. But we live in hope that there is a tool out there that can do this.

Regards
Mark

I have a shareware tool available at

www.lockdesign.ltd.uk 

which allows you to monitor object creation and destruction. It's fully functional for 28 days from date of installation.
