    I'm stupid, my winapp still running in background

    No matter what I do my application is still running in the back ground, have I forgot to add something in my code?

    I'm dumb so go easy on me.

    Are you actually expecting an answer on this?

    Where's the code?

    well, yes, because I am writing this stuff from off the top of my head and there are certain things every windows api template/skeleton (whatever u call it) should have. Anyway the problem WAS as I described...I forgot to include PostQuitMessage in a WM_CLOSE case, that seems to've fixed it altogether (no crashing, no window running in background).

    EDIT: as I may or may not have hinted at, I'm dumb
