Here, RO 4.02 Emu 0.8.9 running under Core 2 Duo and Win 7 (32bit) 

If the above is ticked, you cannot Exit Emu, either by Ctrl-Shift f12 or
from the Switcher menu option.

With the above unticked, no problem.

I'll test it later with an XP machine and other versions of RO.

Thanks for all the work folks.
