Integrate SPDisposeCheck tool to Visual Studio 2005

SharePoint developers always used to take additional care to dispose SPWeb and SPSite object as their unmanaged memory footprint really large, failing in this will create serious performance issues.

Luckily Microsoft released a command line tool to inspect the assemblies to identify such issues.

Download SPDisposeCheck here

Find more info here : Roger Lamb's developer blog

Install the SPDisposeCheck.msi installer package and ensure that you have the executable in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\SharePoint Dispose Check\

In visual Studio Select Tools--- > External Tools
Click Add and fill the fields as follows

Now build your project first and run this tool to get the memory leak fix instructions in your output window.
