Re: APCC Not Restarting Cleanly

APCC has an auto-shutdown option in APCC's Advanced Settings. If you enable that option, APCC will automatically close itself once all clients disconnect from the driver and the driver closes down.

Please take a look here:

This is the line in Bob's Shutdown.js:

Console.PrintLine("**Failed to stop AstroPhysicsCommandCenter");

Normally that closes APCC but sometimes the ASCOM driver is left running and if your restart APCC, it will
not connect to the ports. What I have noticed now is that I do not see the driver running and APCC will not
start up again without giving me an error about creating the virtual ports.

Is there a "best practices" to do this in the shutdown script?
