Format and reinstall without even getting near that app?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Nope, all my apps stop when they should and sometimes when they shouldn't
Did your colleague spin up a separate thread that he never disposes?
I've seen applications keep running in the background before, both web and desktop, and it was usually a threading problem (and a bad code base overall, but that's another issue).
the damn thing just seems to keep running even though I wrote a special "Stopper" application.
I find that incredibly annoying myself, even asked about it on the Q&A forums and got no answer.
From what I've learned, if it helps: a typical IIS application, the DLL's are shadow copied so you can update the master ones and IIS detects this and copies re-shadows the DLL's, all nice and seemless to the user experience on the browser.
ASP.NET Core applications aren't shadow copied, so IIS "locks" the DLL's regardless of whether there's any endpoint call currently being executed or not. The only solution I've found is to manually stop the associated application pool, do the update, and restart it.
And there seems to be no way to do that from the command line. Extremely frustrating.
I can't see why a person who writes more than one article a month should not have more than one article in the monthly popularity contest. OTOH, the hamsters appear to be obliging entities; if you wish an article to be removed from contention, I'm sure that they'd oblige.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

Actually we used to have categories like VB.NET, and Web Development. The rule was you could be nominated in two separate categories. Now we only have one category, so we only allow one author per competition.
