I just tried it and went back to the old version. When I close the window of v14, the process keeps running on the background and I need to manually kill it using the regular windows explorer. (Using 64-bit Windows 7 here.) My older version doesn't have that problem.

Once they fix that issue, I'll look into getting it again, since it's my favorite tool of them all. :)

-it may neither be a problem or an issue, but a long requested feature..
 ;)

Edited: I don't like it either. The red cross should mean exit.

I find that PE disappears from Task Manager 10-15 seconds after I close it (with XP).

I remember v12 to have done that, too. Or was it the tray icon functionality?

with 12.04 (running here) the process only dies on window closing IF Options > Hide when minimised is deselected

v14.0 behaves that way as well, on my system.

It's never been selected for me. Just tried reinstalling v14, checked the menu, and surely, it's also turned off when trying the new version.

I'm on Win 7 64 bit as well and PE 14 closes fine here from the "X" on the upper right of the window...
