layout.exe continues to run in the background after closing the Layout window JohnBris 5/22/12 4:39 PM
SketchUp Version: 8 Pro

I have a licensed Google SketchUp Pro 8 installation on a Windows 7 - 64 bit PC and have an issue where if a user opens, uses and then closes the Layout program, the window closes but the layout.exe process continues to run in the background and prevents Layout opening again until the process is killed in task manager or the PC is restarted.


Has anyone else experienced this issue?

How long are you waiting'?  The windows memory manger can be a little slow of clearing a program some times. Try waiting a little before attempting to reopen.
