Windows 7: Heap Leak Detection and Win7

Heap Leak Detection and Win7

I need some help with this. I found it in the registry as a key and within it are some programs that appear to have triggered some some sort of leak detection. However, I know of no program with windows 7 that allows you to view those applications reported in the registry (heapleakdetection). Now I tried to research this a bit more and the only interesting link I found was from HP called HPJMeter. Now it's great that HP has their own program but it was my thinking that windows 7 would actually have it's own. I didn't try using HPJMeter because it's clear that it's specific for HP based systems.

Now to make a long story short if there are programs causing a memory leak and windows 7 detects them it would be nice to know about it. I'm just not sure why there is no program within Windows 7 that works similarly to HPJMeter though.

Can anyone elaborate or further explain this? Is there a program within Windows 7 that I'm not aware of? Or perhaps a 3rd party program?

Thanks fo the link. If I understood this correctly Heap Leak Detection is more an automated process that sends leak detected program back to MS which then informs the developers?? Or as that just for Windows 7 beta?
