Don't know about .exe files but if you are able to debug your projects under Linux you could use the free valgrind. It's really good IMHO.

Look up the CRT functions. You can call a function at the end of the program (_CrtDumpMemoryLeaks) or set a flag that automatically does this at the end of the program.

Check out the CRT debug heap.

Depends on your OS, OS X has CHUD.

A bad way in windows is use the windows task man too see the memory usage from start to end execution. Visual Studio has some tools you can look into, search help on your install of VS

Linux has an array of tools.
