Problems shutting down Activ Ebook

davidk67 Hi,

  The ebooks that I have created using Activ Ebook will not shut down completely.  

By this I mean upon exiting an exiting an ebook created with the 4.01 Activ compiler, I can hear a lot of hard drive activity.  This will continue indifinitely until I bring up the task manager with <ctrl><alt><del>.  It then shows the name of the ebook and [not responding].  I then cancel the ebook that way.

   My system is as follows:
Microsoft ME
Activ Compiler 4.01

  I have taken the follow steps to rule out any issues with the html:
- I have removed all password protection
- I have made it with a one page web site with no "extras" just plain HTML
- I have downloaded and reinstalled the Activ compiler (version 4.01)

 It is still doing it.  

Can someone try to download a sample ebook I have posted here and confirm it is doing it also? I would like to confirm that it is not specific to my computer only.


  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

davidk67 Hi all,

   Sunil was kind enough to point out where the issue was.  It appears that my internet cache file was very large and this plays a factor in the 4.01 version shutting down.

  I cleared out my cache file and it did in fact stop the problem.  Sunil also let me know that this issue was being addressed in the next version.

  Thank you Sunil!

Jeff K I thought that might be the problem. It took forever to close an eBook if there was a large cache in Win ME, but it only takes a few seconds in Win XP.
