Tools updates

Download SAD v1.3.2 x86|x64
Download LeakShell v1.4.1 x86|x64

I’ve got bad feedbacks when using SAD or LeakShell without the right environment variables set or LeakDiag not installed. Therefore, I’ve updated both tools to warn their users accordingly.

For SAD, the situation is simple: without LeakDiag or symbols/binaries environment variables set, there’s no hope. So, before the main window is shown, I’m checking for both conditions and try to help fixing the issue:

  • Environment variables: I’m helping by providing a link that starts the system dialog from where they can be set. Unfortunately, you need to restart SAD because there is no easy way (is there one?) to check the change through the process environment block that has not been updated.
  • LeakDiag installation: the link to the Microsoft download page is clickable and if you install it before clicking the Ok button, SAD will start normally.

I hope this helps

    Hello Chris,

    I got “This item won’t load right now.”. How do I have the right?

    If you try to open the page by clicking on link, you will land into “This item won’t load..” message from skydrive. (may be due to “security feature” in skydrive).
    You will have to right click on the link and select “Save Link as”/”Save Target as” from the popup menu that appears.

    Hope this helps 🙂
