Hi,
Just tried the latest RS 0.6.6 and it appears the same problem persists.
When you close the server in the normal way i.e. "X" at top right of window, it leaves a background task running.
That means when you try to load the program again you get a message saying it's already running.
It should be easily possible in your software to close the thread completely using 'abort' or 'dispose' or whatever.
It's really tedious to have to dip into task manager every time a restart is needed.
If you could look at this for a future release it would be appreciated
Thanks

Hi,
It's not a problem, ExpertRS suppose to work this way, if you want to close it for good, press the right mouse button on the icon in the taskbar and select Quit.

Thanks for the reply. I can't think of any other program I've used that leaves background tasks running when you close with the 'X'. I'd prefer to use the '-' to run minimised, and 'X' to end completely, but if that's how it is, that's how it is.

Additional:
I thought I would try as Rome suggested.
There is no 'Quit' option when you right click the icon in the taskbar, just the usual 'X' option, which still leaves a background task.
Please could you clarify the exact method of closing completely, and please test what you are saying. The 'Quit' option you mention does not appear to exist.
Thanks

Hi Rome,
Interesting. I get something different.
See the attached grabs. Are we talking about the same thing? I'm using Colibri Nano RS, and I'm trying to Quit on the same machine RS is running on.
Thanks
