I tried to separate the event loop and the main loop so that the window continues rendering while dragging the window. I have achieved this through another thread.

But when I am dragging the window and meanwhile the code calls window.Close() the window stays open until I release the left mouse button.

So, what's the problem here exactly? When would a user be exiting the application while simultaneously dragging the applications window?

Anyway, window events are "paused" until the window is released (as you have noticed).

Off-topic Note: I'd recommend creating a simple title for threads, and actually asking the question in the thread itself.

Your event loop is probably waiting for the message to return, are you doing message peek?
Post your windows event loop code.
