    What Revit Wants: How to Find Zombie Processes that Are Eating Your Memory in Windows


    When working with serious hardware and big 3D models, computer memory management is an important thing. You want every byte of RAM to be doing a job for your system. So I was very interested to read this detailed write-up by randomascii where he describes ‘zombie handles’ that can hold or consume memory on your system. His post is very detailed, but I will go ahead and over-simplify it for you:
    1. Download findzombiehandles_prebuilt package from here (or clone the github here)
    2. Unzip it and open an elevated Command Window at that location
    3. Run FindZombieHandles

    You should get a list of zombie processes and the parent executable that initiated them.
    From here you could investigate further with Process Explorer or attempt to kill them with Task Manager or taskkill.
