We are installing Windows 8.1 on 5 computers Intel NUC D54250WYK + Classic Shell, aim is to be as near as possible to XP-like working.

Our programs reside on a NAS-server.

On the 5 computers we create a shortcut to the programs.

Now the odd thing is that on 2 computers all is ok, but on the rest the console window host screen (the black screen) does NOT close automatically after program termination.


After clicking on the Close-x, the empty window closes and all is ok.


Why this happens on 3 of the 5 computers?

Is there something inside Windows that controls the behavior of the conhost.exe?
