History Path While MemPro is connected and collecting allocations it stores all allocations in a file in disk. As you can imagine, this file can get quite big. Please ensure that you have plenty of disk space available. You can change the path that MemPro will save the history file here. MemPro will reuse the same history file for each session. When you save a mempro file you have the option of embedding the history file.
Units Changes the units that the GUI used. Can be GB, MB, K or bytes. Most places that show a memory value will use these units. You can also changes the units using the units button on the GUI.
Embed Allocs file in save files The allocs file is another name for the history file. If this is checked MemPro will embed the allocs file in the mempro save files. If the allocs file is huge then MemPro will warn you to verify that you really do want to embed it.
Embed pdb file in save files MemPro can embed pdb files into mempro save files. This is useful because it means that you don't have to keep the pdb files for each mempro file. If this is checked MemPro will embed the pdb files by default. Pdb files can take up a lot of memory, so if they are above a certain size, MemPro will still warn you and let you choose not to embed them.
Check for updates If this is checked MemPro will check with the PureDev Software servers to see if a newer version of MemPro is available for download. If it is you will be prompted to download and installed the new version.


settings_launch.jpg


Launch Exe, args and working directory These settings mirror the Launch Dialog settings. The settings are saved so that you don't have to enter them each time you run MemPro.


settings_connect.jpg


Connect IP and Port These settings mirror the Connect Dialog settings, with the addition of the secondary port. If MemPro can't connect on the default port (27016), it will try the secondary port. This can be useful when debugging on more than one machine. The settings are saved so that you don't have to enter them each time you run MemPro.
