Re: multiple instances of NVDA

That happens if it crashes and if other programs crash, my guess is that the same thing will happen. It doesn't matter, but if you want to get rid of the fantom instances, just perform an action on one of the fantoms, such as double click it in the system tray. It will disappear and I think all the other fantoms will as well. Of dcourse, clicking on the real instance will do whatever it is supposed to do. But since they do no harm, I don't worry about them and they just sit there.

If you close the program, run it again, and see a fantom, that suggests to me that the program isn't closing properly, that its crashing instead of closing, or that part of it is. This doesn't matter. its when you are working with a program or it is doing something that a crash matters. It doesn't matter if it is closing.

Subject: [nvda] multiple instances of NVDA

It seems that if you close NVDA or restart it you will get multiple
instances of NVDA in the system tray. Right now I have four NVDA
listings in my system tray.
