    Are you talking about running it from the IDE? There should be an option (don't know where on VExpress) that says "hold window open when finished" or the like. Otherwise it should just close when run outside of the IDE unless you put some code to hold it open.

    I don't think so. You have to hit a key at the end of the program.
