Exiting Program after Windows Close

Just recently I noticed that if I close my app while it is minimized, the app seems to be left in memory and is still recognized by Windows as still running. How do I end the app correctly?

If you’re using VB3.0, in the Form_Unload event of the last form that closes when your application ends, you need to put the End statement. That will shut it completely off. In 4.0 that can be a bit more dangerous to your system resources, especially if you’ve set instances of objects. It’s much better in a 4.0 program to carefully close all objects by setting them to “NOTHING” than to use the End statement.
