Why an application in Visual Basic 6 remains in memory after close it

Hi guys,

I have a VB6 application in a shared folder in my windows network, but even when I close it, it remains in memory, is there a way to close it completely????

Thank you very much.

Some reasons:

You closed it using the End command.

You have more than one form open and you didn't close all of them when you quit

You are using DoEvents in a loop

To close all forms do something like this

Dim frm As Form
For Each frm In Forms
  Unload frm
  Set frm = Nothing

Open in new window
