I have experienced a persistent problem when I close Audirvana in Windows 10. More than half the time, Audirvana remains resident in memory, preventing me from re-opening Audirvana until I close the background Audirvana using Windows Task Manager. I was hoping this would be resolved when Audirvana 3.5.0 made its appearance. Unfortunately, the problem persists. I know how to work around it but it is somewhat annoying to have to go to Task Manager to complete closing Audirvana. Are others experiencing this problem or can I assume that it is confined to my specific computer?
Experiencing this problem as well on Windows.
I was connected with standard USB. Sometimes it closes normally, many times it stays open in the background and requires closing via task manager.
For the last few months (and throughout two updates) my Audirvana won´t close at all with the main window´s “X”. With the taskbar preview-window´s “X” it closes sometimes but a stale process stays alive, preventing Audirvana to be restarted until I kill it manually within the task manager. I assumed not to be the only one with this issue so I remained silent in patience for months. But as I just did the latest update, nothing changed. Last night when using Audirvana I even had my first bad-ass win10 system crash ever. This evening Audirvana did a ´minor´ crash and offered me to view a mini-dump, but it didn´t do so despite my request. Since v1.3.9. I´m patiently hoping that things will get ironed out, but most of the time old problems get traded for new problems. To be honest, if only Audirvana didn´t sound that good, I wouldn´t even bother with it´s quirks for a minute. Sorry, rant over.
PS, fun fact: for hassle-free listening I started taping my playlists to compact cassette and open-reel again, like in the last millennium. Why is it that modern technology can be more pain-in-the-tail than ancient magnetic tape?!?
Thanks in advance for advise.

Update: When I last used Audirvana this weekend, finally the “X” started working again. I have no idea if this is sheer incidence or if a fix has been applied silently. BUT I have an idea: As A+ had been getting rather unresponsive before while constantly reporting a library refresh, I turned off monitoring of all local folders as I mainly use A+ for Tidal. Maybe the processing of some local folders (with auto-refresh enabled) might be part (or even cause) of the problem? I will keep an eye on that.
(PS: Sound quality was great as usual, even when the GUI froze;-)
Cheers and greetings to ya all!
