I was a long user of Memproof... correction I am still a user of Memproof, and I use it in two old applications I still maintain, one in Delphi 5 other in Delphi 7.

Now, I'm doing some weird pointer operations (weird cause I'm not an expert) in a new project I started in Delphi XE.
I compiled and try to run with Memproof and I get nothing... looks like memproof can't hook into this Delphi application.
I supose its simply because it was writing long before this particular Delphi version, it's just not prepared for that.

Now, I did some research and found recommendations for FastMM, and EurekaLog.... non of them look similar to memproof...
Well, first question here, are these the only two options? What else?

And next one, in this Delphi XE, it installed a version of AutomatedQA AQTime, and I remember I once used that for memory leaks when a contractor provide me a license of that for certain project. Now I look at what I have installed, and I not even know where to start, seems like this included version does not the memory leak checking thing... does it?
