6.3 shutdown in Windows XP

i am trying out the Hiawatha server 6.3, after using 6.2 for some php development tests, on my Windows XP SP2 box.
I am using the same config and startup configuration files as for version 6.2, and corrected the config file according to the hint in At startup there is no error message any more.

It starts up ok, and seems to work as expected, but CTRL+C doesn't work for me !! The only way i found to kill this version is using the task manager .
I would like to run this server on a Millenium box, but would like to know if there is a better control possible, since i don't want to risk the need for reset on that production box.

Thank You,

Just to clarify a bit more:
I had tested Hiawatha version 6.2 (in XP and) on the Millenium box, and i could start ok, and stop using CTRL+C without a problem.

Thanks for your feedback. I haven't been able to reproduce your problem, but I will continue to search for the cause. If you click on the close button of the window, does Hiawatha shutdown or not?

No, I can close the window, but the process keeps showing in the task list. I must kill it there.

If you can send an e-mail to hugo at leisink dot net, I will send you a new zip file with some changes you can test for me.

Maybe I should mention.
No longer a problem for version 6.4 or 6.5.

good job.
