Application.Exit() does not remove windows form from Memory.

Here is my start/exit code to run and quit the application. It closes everything, but the .exe file is still in memory. How can I make the application full exit and remove itself from memory?

[STAThread]
static void Main()
{
      Application.EnableVisualStyles();  
      Application.DoEvents();
      Application.Run(new IMProgram());
}
      
private void menuItemExit_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
      foreach(Form frmOne in this.OwnedForms)
      {
            frmOne.Close();
            frmOne.Dispose();
      }

      Application.Exit();
}

tpwells: The application is still in memory with this.Close().

do you know if the Main() is getting past the Application.Run(new IMProgram());

I know that this tells the program to run the new IMProgram() class and when that class is over then the program ends.

But test it to make sure it actually finishes with that call. Try placing a MessagBox.Show("Done"); after the Application.Run and once you Close the program if the messagebox fails to popup then we will know that the process is not ending on close and its hanging somewhere else.

What does the class IMProgram further do.. There is something that is locking inside there, like a thread or something.
