I am using vld to debug the memory leaking problems in my program written in VS C++6 under Win XP. I have followed vld instructions and can compile the program successfully, but get linker error LINK1104 that states vld.lib cannot be opened.

I have googled error and some people think the linker problem is due to use of MFC in a Static Library. I tried 1) no USE MFC and 2) Use MFC in a Shared DLL, but the same problem exist (cannot open file "vld.lib”) when linking the code.

Does anyone have any clue?
