Currently there is no command to close XNote Stopwatch externally. Howhever if it is really important we could devise something. Is it possible for you to call Win32 API from MS Excel macros?

I'm not familiar with VBA, so here is a pseudocode after googling and guessing:
Code: Select all
Declare Function RegisterWindowMessageA Lib "user32" (ByVal lpString As String) As Long
Declare Function PostMessageA Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal Msg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long) As Long

Msg_CloseAll = RegisterWindowMessageA("Close All XNote Stopwatches")
PostMessageA &HFFFF&, Msg_CloseAll, 0, 0

You should put it somewhere where you want to close running XNote Stopwatch.

Does it generate errors or run smoothly and just does nothing?

Try to seek advice from MS Excel forums. Show them that pseudocode and explain what you want. Any expert should understand an idea and help you with working code. Let me know of results.
