Memory leak

Mon May 20, 2013 10:34 pm

Hi, I realize that this product is discontinued but I use it quite alot in our product line which is a VB6 program.
What I've discovered lately is that there is a memory leak when the port is being written and read continuously over the course of a day.
Seems to vary from PC to PC depending on the type of CPU and how much ram they have. My development PC is a Win7 Intel with 6G ram so I never see the problem unless I watch it with the task manager.
A customers PC with Pentium 4 and 1g of ram runs out of memory within 45mins! I use this: "str = MainCommport.Read2("", vbCr, 2000)"

Any help would be appreciated.
