Application Verifier x64

What is Application Verifier x64?

Application Verifier (64-bit version) is a runtime verification tool for native code that assists in finding subtle programming errors that can be difficult to identify with normal application testing. Application Verifier is designed specifically to detect and help debug memory corruptions and critical security vulnerabilities.
This is achieved by monitoring a native application's interaction with the Windows operating system, profiling its use of objects, the registry, the file system, and Win32 APIs (including heaps, handles, locks, etc), and indicating issues when and where they are discovered.

About  (from Microsoft)

Application Verifier also includes checks to predict how well an application may perform under various account privileges. These compatibility tests are used in Windows Logo program. Application Verifier can be used with any unmanaged application or program.
