Access re-launches on exit
Posted on 2013-01-17
My users had no problems when I had them opening the .ACCDE version of my application. However I was having DLL problems when publishing because we have a mixed environment of 32 and 64 bit pc's. So I decided to distribute the .ACCDB to everyone. This cured the publishing problem.
The problem I have now is that on some pc's, when the user clicks the cross to close the application, Access terminates back to the desktop, and then immediately relaunches dozens of times until the machine crashes. We see the taskbar filling up with all the instances which are being launched. This issues seems to happen when the application has been open for an extended period. If it's only been open for a few minutes, then we dont see this issue when they close it.
It's difficult to troubleshoot this because all pc's except mine are using the runtime version of Access 2010. The problem never occurs on my development pc and never occured when they were runnning the .ACCDE
Has anyone seen a problem like this?
