FIX: Calling GetMsgInfo() in Zetafax COM API results in memory leak



ID: ZTN1906

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax 2012 and earlier


Calling the GetMsgInfo() function in the COM API results in a memory leak in the calling application. The more often the call is made, the bigger the leak. If the call is made in a tight loop from a test application, for a large number of messages with attachments, then memory usage can grow from 2MB to around 150MB until the calling application is restarted.


This was due to some memory resources not being cleanly released in some related functions in the Zetafax COM API layer.
