You are in the middle of riunning your application.  You need to terminate the debug session by presst Ctrl F2 or selecting Run | Program Reset from the C++ Builder main menu.
... or you could just let your application run through until it terminates normally of course.

I tried Project|Program Reset and Ctrl F2, but I got
" Unable to terminate process" as well ... :-(

is there any other way to do this ?
Is the error occurring when you select Program | Reset and Ctrl F2.  Or is it still occurring when you are trying to Close CBuilder?

If you select the Run option from the menu bar are the Step Over and Trace Into options enabled or disabled.  Also, is the Program Reset option enabled or disabled?  This will at least tell you if you're application is still running in a debug state or not.

I have seen this happen in C++Builder if you have manually terminated your application using the Windows Task Manager, rather than the Program | Reset option.  If this is the case, you may also need to manually terminate C++ Builder as well as it is trying to terminate a debug session that you have already manually terminated.  In future, use Ctrl F2 or Program | Reset to terminate your debug session (if this is actually what you have done)
