Why doesn't WINWORD.EXE quit after Closing the document from Delphi?

I managed to distill one of the underlying issues rooted in my question How to trace _AddRef / _Release calls for OLE Automation objects in the unit below.

I'll answer this answer too, just in case anyone else bumps into this.

The question: with the below code, why doesn't WINWORD.EXE always quit (sometimes it does quit).

The unit can probably be trimmed down even more.

unit Unit2;


Winapi.Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls,
Forms, Dialogs, StdCtrls,

TForm2 = id(TForm)
WordXPFailsToQuitButton: TButton;
procedure WordXPFailsToQuitButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
FWordApplication: TWordApplication;
strict protected
function GetWordApplication: TWordApplication; virtual;
function GetWordApplication_Documents: Documents; virtual;
procedure WordApplication_DocumentBeforeClose(ASender: TObject; const Doc: _Document; var Cancel: WordBool); virtual;
procedure WordApplication_Quit(Sender: TObject); virtual;
property WordApplication: TWordApplication read GetWordApplication;
property WordApplication_Documents: Documents read GetWordApplication_Documents;

Form2: TForm2;



{$R *.dfm}

function TForm2.GetWordApplication: TWordApplication;
if not Assigned(FWordApplication) then
FWordApplication := TWordApplication.Create(nil);

FWordApplication.AutoConnect := False;
FWordApplication.AutoQuit := False;
FWordApplication.ConnectKind := ckNewInstance;
FWordApplication.OnDocumentBeforeClose := WordApplication_DocumentBeforeClose;
FWordApplication.OnQuit := WordApplication_Quit;
Result := FWordApplication;

function TForm2.GetWordApplication_Documents: Documents;
Result := WordApplication.Documents;
if not Assigned(Result) then
raise EAccessViolation.Create('WordApplication.Documents');

procedure TForm2.WordXPFailsToQuitButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
WordApplication_Documents.Add(EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam);
WordApplication.Visible := True;
WordApplication.ActiveDocument.Close(False, EmptyParam, EmptyParam);
WordApplication.OnQuit := nil;
WordApplication.OnDocumentBeforeClose := nil;
WordApplication.AutoQuit := True;
FWordApplication := nil;

procedure TForm2.WordApplication_DocumentBeforeClose(ASender: TObject; const Doc: _Document; var Cancel: WordBool);

procedure TForm2.WordApplication_Quit(Sender: TObject);

winword.exe: WinWord.exe won't quit after calling Word.Documents.Add - Word .NET Interop

I'm running into the idic scenario where, when creating Word COM objects in .NET (via the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word assembly), the WinWord process won't exit even though I'm properly closing and releasing the objects.

I've narrowed it down to the use of the Word.Documents.Add() method. I can work with Word in other ways without a problem (opening documents, modifying contents, etc) and WinWord.exe quits when I tell it to. It's once I use the Add() method (and only when adding a temp

winword.exe: How do I terminate WINWORD.EXE when used by classic ASP?

I have a user who has to use Microsoft Word 2007 to create and manipulate word documents in his ASP web application. I'm well aware of the 'Considerations for server-side Automation of Office' KB article and the many third party components available to do this kind of thing, but they've gone a fair bit down this road already.

The problem he's having is that the WINWORD.EXE process never terminates even though he calls Quit on the application object.

For example:

I have tried adding

to the UI section but it doesn't seem to work.

I suspect there is a big difference between Windows Installer errors and MsiExec errors.
