LabVIEW won't close

Is anyone else having the following problems?  Any solutions?


LabVIEW 2013: Click Exit by any method (right click taskbar then click close, push the "x" button, file-->exit) and LabVIEW 2013 "starting" window remains open and does nothing


LabVIEW 2012: Close Exit by any method and the result is a brand new subVI


I have been resolved to close LabVIEW by ending the process.  Surely I am not the only one to deal with this.  I looked through forums, but only found close reference and close subVIs and what not.

There is a known issue with the Getting Started Window that has another work around that should be resolved with available updates.

What about the LabVIEW 2012 opening a new SubVI issue.  Is this known?

I realize this thread is a year old, but Labview 2012 is still doing this for me.


I'm on Windows 7 64 bit.


If I CTRL-Q the start page, it opens a new sub-vi. When I exit the sub-vi, it opens the start page. The X button in the upper right does nothing at all to the start page.


I was finally able to get it to fully quit by pressing CTRL-Q multiple times until the windows went away. Is there a fix planned for this, or is there a better way to exit that doesn't involve quitting multiple times or killing the task from the task manager.

We have the same problem with Labview 2012 64bit.


If the opening screen is closed Labview starts a new VI if this VI is closed the opening screen is displayed and you keep running around in circles.


Could someone please post a usable solution for this as i get the impression this problem occurs with several Labview users.
