There are a few different possible causes of this.

1.Do you have a thread running in your application that is not terminated at the time you close the app?

2. Do you have any dynamically created forms (not autocreated in the application) which you have hidden , but not released (freed)?

3. Do you use the CreateWindow or createwindowEX API anywhere in the app? Failing to release a window using these will do that as well.



Good luck!!

The recommended way to relinquish forms in the VCL is using Release, but with just about all other TObject descandents it is Free. This is why I made a note of mentioning it. Can you give me an example of a scaled down simple project that leaves the button on the taskbar?
