Rider external tool cmd not exiting

Hey guys,

I've set up an external tool which copies project files to my server folder.

My goal is to click run in the project, automatically copy all files to server folder and run the server.

The last part works. Problem is when I run the project, files get copied but cmd won't exit.

So I have to type exit manually every time. Do you know any fix for this? Thanks in advance!

Hi Niclas Jaksch

This is expected behavior. One can try to set off the `Open console for tool output` checkbox in the External tool settings. 

Please let me know how it works for you. Thanks!

Hey Alexandra Guk!

Thank you for your answer. When I untick the checkbox and run my project I cannot see the console output anymore but unfortunately the same things happens. It waits for a exit command so the project gets stuck.

I tried adding exit at the end of my arguments but it does not close the terminal too.

Hi Niclas Jaksch

Sorry for the delay. It seems like it is not possible to close it. Here is the issue: IDEA-167879.
