    Good Afternoon,

    I'm looking for some guidance please

    Just had MapInfo 2019 installed and I've opened it for the first time for a look.

    I now can't exit/quit the program, either by using close in the menu, pressing the 'x' in the top right of the window; or by ending the process in task manager

    Any ideas on how I can close the program, without me shutting down my machine?

    Thank you

    Regards,

    Kev

    You can't quit the program, Kev.  It is that important.

    You can't shut-down either....

    (I hope that helps!)

    I have never seen that before so I looked into the source code for that error message.

    It indicates that there Pro thinks there is a dialog still open somewhere. If you 'alt-tab' through your open windows do you see any other Pro window or dialog still open?
