ConsoleNoClose.exe for Console Apps on Windows to eliminate the X to Close - Has anyone used this app and could you give me some feedback on the results?
Posted on 2014-10-20
I have a windows Console application that runs on XP, Win7, Win8, WinServer2003+
It has always been a problem when users us the X in the upper right to close the application. I saw a posting about this utility called ConsoleNoClose.exe which runs in the background and will disable the X to close.
I wondered if any expert that watches this list has used this utility and if there are any gotcha's that might be an issue.
When I searched the web, I saw more hits about Removing the utility than installing and it got me a bit worried that the use of the utility caused issues that I might not be anticipating.
If you have a better solution to eliminating the X in a Windows Console application, I would be glad to know what else I might investigate.
