EXE won't close. Open references?

I created an EXE and it runs and stops fine but when I try to exit out of the program, the icon for the program in the toolbar doesn't go away. I need to go to task manager and manually end the task.  I'm thinking this might be due to an open reference.  This is a very large program with many references so it is difficult to know what is still open or closed.


Is there a way to determine what references or VIs are still open after the program ends?


Thank you.

I don't think an open reference would keep the executable open, but a VI running would. Do you run subVIs asynchronously?
