First let me say please ignore the other email re: writing the
monitor_conn and qsocketnotify code in VS2005...I figure it out. thx.
I'm noticing the check box without the check. Not sure exactly when
or how it is getting that way. But it does happen.
I try to close the supplicant with a terminate request. Some times I
close it with a ctrl-c in its cmd window.
I wonder maybe if I kill the cmd window with alt-f4 or "exit" or the
little 'x' button, if that doesn't close the app correctly??
