Komodo not releasing after exit on Windows

I have to kill Komodo from the Task Manager every time I want to restart it, as the old instance doesn’t seem to have shut down properly.

Is there some way this can be solved? Is there a log file I can send in or something?


Could you post the contents of “Help > Troubleshooting > View Log File” ?

Here’s the contents of pystderr.log, after I’ve force-quit Komodo.

Could you show us the error log as after you force quit it but before you start it again? You can manually retrieve the log at profiledir/pystderr.log.

Look here for info on locating your profile dir: http://community.activestate.com/faq/komodo-file-locations#appdata_dir

That’s it, actually.

Ah sorry, thought you were showing the log after starting Komodo up again.

Is there anything unusual about your Komodo setup? The fact that it’s on a drive called “F:” looks unusual, though that on it’s own should not matter.

I don’t think so. F is just the drive I have my user profiles stored on.

It could be an interference from other software - Direct Folders is one such application that can cause shutdown hangs for Komodo:

You may be able to dig further on this problem, by following Mark’s comments in the above bug (comment 1).

And the cigar goes to Todd!

Yep, killing DF solves the problem. That’s a shame, as I can’t live without Direct Folders. Not sure if you guys use it, but it rocks.

Thanks for making the connection Todd.


And as the post for the 3.73 update says, it stops the issue with Firefox (aka Mozilla framework)



Yep - the update fixes the problem. Glad you got it solved.
