Unable to quit Access.

P: n/a
Hi All, I previous posted:

I have an access 97 database that I'm still using by running it with
the runtime version created using ODE Tools. I have had to upgrade my
machines to Windows XP and since then when I quit the database in the
runtime version it does not quit the application but leaves a"ghost"
session of access open that are unusable and that you cannot end
except by force quitting it in the
task manager. How do I fix this.

and I got the reply for:

See the Exorcist:

HOWEVER, I checked the kb article and this was not the problem on my
database, what I have discovered thereafter is that the msvcrt.dll
series of dll's have something to do with this, exactly what I would
not have the first idea, any takes on this?

What do I do now?

Thanks in advance for everyone that has helped so graciously so far.

Kind regards.

Are you using any Activex controls on forms/reports? I've run into this
problem (although not with the runtime) when my Activex control wasn't
properly shutdown, or experienced an unhandled error. Also make sure you are
closing ALL objects that have been opened in your code.
