View Full Version : Computer freezes on "End Process"

June 19, 2008, 14:56:49

I've created a .NET application with the ICImagingControl and start/stop functionality. Everything seems to be working fine. The problem occurs when the application is terminated using "End Process" in Task Manager. If the application is showing video, the computer freezes and a reboot is required. Any other way to shut down the application works fine.

Unfortunately, I know that end-users will use "End Process" sometimes to end the application.

I was wondering if anyone has encountered the same problem and has a solution.

If you need more information, I'll post it here.

Hope to hear from someone

I am very sorry, but we have no influence on memory and thread handling, if a process is killed. The Taskmanager especially warns about this. But at least on my computers I do not have to reboot the computer.

I suggest to tell your customer not to use the Task Manager for killing programs in order to avoid damages on ther computers.
