I'm getting an illegal operation error with my program when I click the exit button.  I do not get this error if I use the X at the top of the window.  For the exit buttons click event I have just the word end.  Any ideas?

I'm using an OCX for popup buttons... I have 5 of them. 4 work perfectly doing other events, but from the test I just ran the 5 one - the exit button - gives me the illegal operation error. Is there any way to fix that?

When you click the "x" at the top of the window, you force the program to close instead of shutting down the program. i.e. the process(es) of the program is/are still running at background. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del and you will know. The process is still there. Perhaps you still have operation running when you want to quit??? Please check to see if any of your program interface(s) is/are active when you try to quit!
