Application gets stuck on exit

R.,
This is going to be nearly impossible to resolve without having a “repro” application.

From the “hints” in the text below, it looks like that the customer is using the COM version of the component, from C++. In general, the exit scenarios get very complicated here, especially when the component is run In-process. Can you please ask the customer what have they checked in EasyOPC-DA Options, and if “In-process server” is checked, then uncheck it, and leave only “Local server” checked?

The dump file had an error message number 0x80000004: A trace trap or other single-instruction mechanism signaled that one instruction has been executed. I haven’t been able to find any helpful information on this error. Is he just missing the CoUnitialize?

Any ideas on this error would be great.

Thanks,
