Can't delete standalone in Windows

Regarding the inability to trash certain standalones that are transferred 
from Mac to Windows, it does appear that I can trash the standalone in Windows 
using control-alt-delete.   But to prevent the problem in the first place, you 
are correct, Scott, that quitting the program through the "Quit" command, 
rather than the close box in the titlebar prevents the problem.   Thus, the 
solution seems to be to not build in a close box in the standalone titlebar.   Thanks 
Scott.   I love this group.
