    I've recently switched to Windows 7 64bit and I am seeing a strange problem with TCCLE not exiting correctly.

    After using the program for some time (say a few hours), and type 'exit' to quit, the process would exit, but the window would stuck on the desktop.

    I don't see tcc.exe in task manager, so I think the process ended, but somehow the window stayed beyond, and I can't find anyway to get rid of it other than reboot or log out.

    This is a brand new install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit with SP1:

    Code:
    TCC LE  12.10.61   Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]
    TCC LE Build 61   Windows 7 Build 7601  Service Pack 1
    
    Has anyone else seen this problem? Before this I was using XP-64bit and this never happens. I am not sure if this is a TCCLE bug or a Win7 bug, and the best theory I have is perhaps some programs I launched from TCCLE (say editors, etc, that are still running) is causing some confusion in Windows? Or tccle is not cleaning up something properly?

    Really bizarre and annoying. ;)

    Edit: just now I closed my 2nd TCCLE window via the X on the top right of the window (to see if it makes any difference close via 'exit' vs mouse), again the window does not disappear and tcc.exe is no longer running. I can minimize/restore this orphaned window fine.

    This cannot be a TCC/LE issue. The console window is controled by the Windows console manager (conhost.exe); you should redirect the question to Microsoft.

    You could also run Process Explorer to see just who (if anybody) is still running in the console window.

    Thanks for the tip. I ran process explorer, and I saw 3 conhost.exe processes, launched by csress.exe (as parent node in pe). I have 3 orphaned cmd windows. There are no sub processes in conhost.exe. (is this what you were looking for? ie, if there's a subprocess, it would show up...)

    Thanks.
