I think I've found a bug in the latest version of VisualBoyAdvance. The application doesn't terminate properly when I choose "exit" or click the X. The window goes away and all seems well, but, the task manager continues to hold the VisualBoyAdvance process unless I end-task it.

It's not so much a problem as it is annoying to have to terminte it manually every time I want to start it up again.

Perhaps it's termination protocol was somehow compromised on one of the updates or perhaps it's because XP has "issues".

No exceptions in particular. It doesn't matter if I load a game or not, when I close the program it's task does not terminate.

Perhaps my operating environment is to blame for this occurrence. I belive I've had this problem since upgrading to version 1.5, I still have this problem with the latest version.

Is there some sort of information I could send you perhaps? Some logging I could do maybe?

I just tried the beta and it does the same thing.

Now.. Here's something odd.
When I run the executable in a new directory (without the ini) it closes just fine and creates a new ini, running it after with that ini is fine as well.
When I use the ini I have all my previous settings in I get that termination problem.

I suppose I can just delete my ini and start fresh configuring everything again.
I wonder what option I have that is causing this...

Ok, get this.
I looked further into the issue, and somehow, placing visualboy advance in the folder I usually keep it puts it into "run in windows 95 compatable" mode.

I'm not sure why this is if I've been updating that file, but I unchecked the box and I no longer have the problem.
