Version 2.11.15 of the windows eddie client on windows 10 64 bit reports the client is still running if you attempt to close and restart the client.

 

A quick check of the running tasks shows that the executable is still running event though the GUI instances closed.

If you have Minimize In Tray ans Single Instance checked on.

 

Note I expect that if you have Minimize In Tray Icon on and you attempt to close you in effect dont close but instead put the client into the Task Tray.  Unfortunately there is no icon in the tray if you close the gui.  The only fix is to end task the eddie executable and relaunch.

 

As a temporary fix if you turn off minimize to tray icon this doesnt happen.

 

seems like a bug.

 

Can someone please check?

that version does not fix the full issue.

my issue is on windows 10 the eddie UI after some time of being open dissapears even if you have not ticked minimize to tray.

only way to get it back is to kill process and start eddie again.

very annoying that I have to resort to using openvpn.

A work around is to click 'Disconnect'. Then wait for the Title bar on top to say 'Session terminated'.
Then click 'Exit' from the AirVPN menu on top.

This happens with various applications, not only with Eddie. Restart Explorer and the tray icon should re-appear. Double-click on the tray icon to bring up the main window.

This is the proper way to exit Eddie, not a workaround.
