.net application has memory leak on Windows Server 2019 Standard Etition

Our application built on .net 4.8 has memory leak only on Windows Server 2019 Standard Edition. We tested application on several 2019 installations.

Same application working well on other windows OS (2012, 2016, windows10...).

Normally application uses 70 MB RAM but the application increases memory usage 400 MB in a 24 hours on Windows Server 2019 and same environment .

This is not a new application but it has been used by our customers since the beginning of the 2000s.
