Can I delay the closure of Internet Explorer after I close it?


We have a application that runs both on LAn and WAN. On WAN which is slower then LAN , due to the fast closure of IE some connections in server are left in CLOSE_WAIT state as IE closes before sending the final acknoeledgement. So I am looking to find out if I can delay the closure of IE so that IE can send the final ack and the connection at the server is freed.

Hi. I don't think you can do that. Even if it's possible, I don't think you can find that in the Settings Menu, for me it seems more like a coding mather, so the different commands run in different threads, and one of them is put to sleep with the other receives the response, and only after that, the program can close completely.
I agree. Here's the link:
