On my Windows 7 64 bit workstation running Creo2, the stack of icons showing my open windows will sometimes show one or more called 'Hidden Parent':
WF4 & WF5 (and earlier versions, I believe) would do this when there was another dialog or even an input box open, and that does seem to be the case here sometimes, but these 'Hidden Parents' seem to stick around after the dialog goes away. Sometimes, if I minimize Creo2 with a dialog open, ALL the windows show as 'Hidden Parent' with no image to tell me which is which.
If I decide to close one of them with the little X, Creo2 goes away but xtop.exe and parametric.exe remain open in task manager.
Anyone else seeing anything similar? A search of the KB for 'Hidden Parent' came up empty.
