Having a little issue here with a Delphi Dll.
Problem is when I close the application that uses the Dll the process still shows up, which means my application isn't terminating properly.

Dll Code

library dllclient;

uses
  SysUtils,
  Classes,
  IdTCPClient;

{$R *.res}

var
  Client: TCPClient;

function TcpConnect(_host: pchar; _port: integer) : Integer; export; stdcall;
begin
  Client:= TCPClient.Create(nil);
  Client.Port:= _port;
  Client.Host:= _host;
  try
    Client.Connect;
  except
    result:= -1;
  end;
  result:= Integer(Client);
end;

function TcpConnected(socket: integer) : Boolean; export; stdcall;
begin
  result:= TcpClient(socket).Connected;
end;

function CloseSocket(socket: integer) : Boolean; export; stdcall;
begin
  try
    if Assigned(TcpClient(socket)) and (TcpClient(socket).Connected) then
    begin
      TcpClient(socket).IOHandler.InputBuffer.Clear;
      TcpClient(socket).Socket.Close;
      TcpClient(socket).Free;
    end;
  except
    result:= False;
  end;
  result:= True;
end;

exports TcpConnect, TcpConnected, CloseSocket;

begin
end.

Form Code
uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, IdBaseComponent, IdComponent, IdCustomTCPServer,
  IdTCPServer, IdContext;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    IdTCPServer1: TIdTCPServer;
    Button1: TButton;
    Memo1: TMemo;
    Button2: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure IdTCPServer1Execute(AContext: TIdContext);
    procedure Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

var
  socketint: integer;

function TcpConnect(host: PChar; port: integer):Integer; stdcall; external 'dllclient.dll';
function TcpConnected(socket: Integer): Boolean; stdcall; external 'dllclient.dll';
function CloseSocket(socket: Integer) : Boolean; stdcall; external 'dllclient.dll';

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if(socketint = -1) then
  begin
    socketint:= TcpConnect('localhost', 33333);
    memo1.Lines.add(IntToStr(socketint));

    if(TcpConnected(socketint)) then
      memo1.lines.add('We are connected!');
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if(socketint <> -1) then
  begin
    if(CloseSocket(socketint)) then
    begin
      memo1.lines.add('Socket Closed!');
      socketint:= -1;
    end
    else
      memo1.lines.add('Failed to Close Socket');
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  socketint:= -1;
end;

procedure TForm1.IdTCPServer1Execute(AContext: TIdContext);
begin
  while(True) do
  begin
    sleep(100);
  end;
end;

end.

What about  TForm1.IdTCPServer1Execute?
It's obviously an endless loop. I guess this could be a problem. Maybe you should add a Terminate variable or similar.

Ya.. I'm an idiot. Shouldn't of even of had to post this.

Changed that code to..

if not (AContext.Connection.IOHandler.InputBufferIsEmpty) then
begin
   // do stuff here
end
else
   sleep(100);
