Of course I have the latest Updates installed. My OS is Windows 7 64 bit.
Any updates on that issue?
I also have the same issue with the CS5 Production Premium version. And if i don't stop the process from the task manager, sometimes it adds an extra process consuming my memory. I'm also updated to the latest version.
This is getting really anoying. Any updates on that issue?
I have recently seen some cases in which updating ATI graphics card drivers makes this problem go away. Try updating your graphics card drivers.
I tried that. No change. Sorry, but how did you program your software? I'm a software engineer, and closing a program is normally the easiest part. BTW, I paid lots of money for my Adobe Production Suite and it is a bit embarrising for you guys not to get this done!
I am also a Software Developer and I would think that the reason they probably have not fixed this problem is because it may not be easy to reproduce.
I have the same problem but here is my information:
Dell XPS 435 with Vista Ultimate 64bit
12 Gigs RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4800 Video Card with 10.12 drivers
600 Gigs of HD free
Premiere Pro CS5 5.0.3
Problem happens even if a blank project is loaded, if the Exit button is clicked on the Welcome Screen PrPro closes fine.
I thought I fixed the problem before by updating my video card, but it may be a conflict with 5.0.3 now. Just an idea.
I'm only a nitwit with a big mouth, and know nothing about software development, but have you considered that when closing a program, anti-virus programs take time to check the files before letting them be written to disk, indexing, if not turned off, needs to update the index, memory needs to be freed, possible page swaps need to occur, stuff like that, that do take time?
Personally I have never seen multiple instances of PR or AME in the process list, but have noticed that occasionally it does take some time for housekeeping to clean up, just like an hotel, where housekeeping has to clean up first, before the room can be made available for the next guest and if the hotel has a very lean housekeeping staff, the next guest may have to wait a bit longer after the late check-out of the previous guest before his room is ready.
It is pretty easy to point the finger at Adobe, because it is their program that is not released, but if lots of people do not experience this problem, and it can not easily be replicated, it may make more sense to point the finger at a background process that causes this. That will be extremely difficult for Adobe to find.
I'm not an experienced programmer either, but my IT experience tells me that this is a bug. When 99% of the common software closes, it's proccesses takes up to 4-5 seconds to terminate. If it doesn't then it's a failure to terminate successfully. So it's a software glinch. It could be another software or driver which is responsible for that, but i assume that is very unlikely. I had a same problem with the Kaspersky server edition. It was fixed on the next update. I do beleive this is an issue with some new code Adobe uses on the CS5 series. I have this on Premiere, Encore, Soundbooth. Even if i wait 10-20-30 minutes the proccess still exist. This may stack up to 3-4 times...
I do beleive that Adobe is on to this and we'll get a fix or workaround soon. As far as i have used CS5, this is the least buggy version (and i'm using Adobe since '95)
As Harm states:
When PrPro closes, there is a "cleanup" routine that runs to remove some of the working files. This can take a few seconds, to a few minutes, depending on several variables. Are the programs still appearing in Task Manager (or similar) more than say 5 mins.?
10 minutes or more seems very excessive. But in my experience, 4 to 5 minutes is not all that uncommon. 4 to 5 seconds I've just never seen on my rig. It always takes longer than that for all the processes to close.
