View Full Version : WINOLDAP (Compiling troubles)

11-13-2001, 07:12 AM
Well, everytime I use Borland 5.0:s DOS compiler (not the 32bit), something is left into the memory which is called WINOLDAP (You can see it if you press CTRL-ALT-DELETE).

Every time you compile, one WINOLDAP is created so if you have compiled a program 50 times (which is not unusual), you have 50 WINOLDAP:s in the memory. This is, as you may understand, pretty annoying as you must use CTRL-ALT-DELETE to shut down all of them before you can shut down the computer properly.

Does anyone know a solution to this problem? Or at least give me some directions to make a program that searches for all WINOLDAP:s and shuts them down, so you only have to run that program to get rid of them.

I found the error. There was some file under windows/system that didn't have the flag "close on exit" checked :)
