External Process causes Hanging?

I am using an external process with FileMaker Pro 17. I mean I am using the Send Event script step to run something from the command line. I do this sometimes with BE_SendEvent or even use the Troi File Plugin to do it. In this case, I have tried multiple ways. My problem is that when I send the script more than once, FileMaker seems to hang. A lot of times it produces a spinner ( I am on Windows 10) that does not ever end. When I send the command the first time (after a restart of Windows 10) it works perfectly, then maybe a second time. When I run the process over and over again from the command line it completes without a problem. Does anybody know something about this concept? I would like to know if there is a way to end the connection it is keeping with the said process? Or just get FileMaker to be normal after a bunch of these like can run from the command line natively? Thanks
