At the end of the day working from home office laptop remotely on my office machine, I wanted to close my local FM17 client on my laptop which had been open all day in the background - I can't remember which / if it had an open file -

…and I am unable to quit it.

It looks like a problem with reconnection



Note: Probably of some LOCAL DB, because I have no host connections from my laptop.

I can still open + the launch window:

...but QUITTING does nothing


nor from dock:


I can view my recents:


...but I can't quit.

Opening the most recent, does not solve the problem:



How to replicate

I can't ... but I thouht the info may still be useful.


Workaround (if any)

Had to fiorce quit FM17



Has anybody any ideas?
