The Memory window is available only if address-level debugging is enabled the Options dialog box, Debugging node.

You can use a Memory window to view large buffers, strings, and other data that do not display well in the Watch or Variables window. In the Visual Studio debugger, you can open up to four Memory windows.

NoteNote

This feature is not available for languages such as script and SQL that do not support the concept of memory.

NoteNote

The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
