Delphi 7 debugger hangs briefly on application exit
Posted on 2007-12-05
I use Delphi 7. On occasion, when I am running an application in the debugger and I exit the application normally, Delphi seems to get hung, and hangs the rest of my computer desktop as well. This always remedies itself after some period of time. Sometimes it takes a few seconds, sometimes as much as a minute, and sometimes not at all all within the same application. It only happens when debugging, the applications all run fine outside of the debugger. This only happens when I terminate the application normally if I do a Program Reset I return to the debugger with no delay.
I have never been able to tell what is going on when this happens. Ive tried watching task manger when it occurs but even the task manager is not updating its screen when this goes on. I suspect its bad behavior on the part of some component that I am using because it does not happen with simple programs, only my more involved projects.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any Ideas?
