HxD becomes an unkillable zombie when run from the command line

Post by bluestreak »

When run from the command line on a file, e.g. "hxd file.dat", HxD throws up an error dialog:

"Runtime error 217 at 00..0423FB7"

Closing this or killing the HxD process from the Task Manager results in it immediately respawning and throwing up another dialog. The only way to actually kill it is to restart Windows. This has occurred for several versions of HxD.
