I am trying to find possible memory leaks in a MFC application. I tried Rational Purify. I was able to launch a console application using RATIONAL PURIFY. But when I launch any MFC based application using Rational purify, the application crashes. I suppose, the crash is due to, Rational purify can't able to instrument the code.
 
I am using MFC VC6 dialog based application for testing purpose, where the crash occurs. If we launch without Ration Purify, application launches.
 
I tried the default settings and the settings in the below link. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/library/07/0313_cherkasov/#
 
Is there any other settings we need to change in Project Settings or in Rational Purify? or am I missing something?
 
Thanks.

Sorry I can't exactly answer your question, but here is what we did:
We had mixed results over the years with MFC applications and Rational Purify.
Now we use Memory Validator - no problems.
