The _CrtIsValidHeapPointer function is used to ensure that a specific memory address is within the local heap. The "local" heap refers to the heap created and managed by a particular instance of the C run-time library. If a dynamically linked library (DLL) contains a static link to the run-time library, then it has its own instance of the run-time heap, and therefore its own heap, independent of the application's local heap.

We're moving towards DLLs...

See above...
