My program is 'running' in background
I still want to perform a procedure just before my computer shuts down.
When I put it with
onclose->nothing
ondestroy->sometimes when rebooting
free(redefined)->nothing
release(redefined)->nothing
So, what do I have to do

PS: if this makes it harder? -> I still want to copy a file

put it in your onclosequery event...

example

begin
 canclose := false;
  Copyfile('c:\autoexec.bat', 'c:\temp\autoexec.bat', false');// false is to override the file if it is already in the directory...
   CanClose := True;
end;

Later

It took a while for me to check this one out but I had a logical mistake somewhere else in the program.
Your answer however works just fine.

Informatics,
but I Usually don't use the name zwarte
It was the first name that allowed me acces to experts exchange 'cause I was trying to get in with a hotmail adress(this doesn't work), and when I  finally tried my company adres I got in, but under the name of zwarte.
I do however know a guy that went by the name of Zwarte Fons, but not just zwarte
