Kdenlive processes active after application is shut down

Running Kdenlive with Windows 10.

Why are there so many Kdenlive processes active after the application is shut down? Currently the task manager is showing 9 processes still running.

Couldn't upload an image so I added a URL.

This is still a bug, even in Kdenlive 17.08.2. Close/shut down the processes manually.

I've been doing that. It's a pain to have to do it manually.

Pain? just create a ".BAT" ... place these lines on it:
Code: Select all
taskkill /IM "kioslave.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "kdenlive.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "dbus-daemon.exe" /T /F
wmic process where name='kdenlive.exe' delete
wmic process where name='kioslave.exe' delete
wmic process where name='dbus-daemon.exe' delete

and execute as Administrator to kill everything :)

This works even better.:)

Now if only bug # 386281 could be fixed as easily.

First I should let you know that there is no "kioslave.exe" in kdenlive 19.08.3. Now it is "kioslave5.exe". So, now the code looks like this:
Code: Select all
taskkill /IM "kioslave5.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "kdenlive.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "dbus-daemon.exe" /T /F
wmic process where name='kdenlive.exe' delete
wmic process where name='kioslave.exe' delete
wmic process where name='dbus-daemon.exe' delete


But, unfortunately, this is not working. On the basis of the existing batch file, I made another one:
Code: Select all
taskkill /IM "kioslave5.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "kdenlive.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "dbus-daemon.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "gpgme-w32spawn.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "ffplay.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "ffprobe.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "ffmpeg.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "melt.exe" /T /F
taskkill /IM "kdenlive_render.exe" /T /F
wmic process where name='kdenlive.exe' delete
wmic process where name='kioslave5.exe' delete
wmic process where name='dbus-daemon.exe' delete
wmic process where name='gpgme-w32spawn.exe' delete
wmic process where name='ffplay.exe' delete
wmic process where name='ffprobe.exe' delete
wmic process where name='ffmpeg.exe' delete
wmic process where name='melt.exe' delete
wmic process where name='kdenlive_render.exe' delete


This is also not working. Now, tell me what should I do?! To me the last resort is, delete the folder and clean the registry entries related to kdenlive. But, it should not be the actual process. I don't know what processes are running because I couldn't find any help file regarding that. So, if you people, who are much more experienced with kdenlive and the developer himself, can put some light on it, I think many users like me will be grateful.

kioslave5, dbus-daemon and gpgme are "daemons", which provide *light* services that are supposed to be shared across app instances and various apps. The fact that they remain active is not a bug but expected (the only problem is when you want to delete the files).
kdenlive.exe remaining active after close was a Qt bug, that is fixed by a downstream patch in Craft package (but cannot be merged as not very clean & general), that we use for 2 years.
