I think this is a bug. The code to set the running state must have been 
lost some when during development. I have just committed an update 
including a fix for this:

Changes 2016-10-22, v1.3.2-RC2 by Rainer Meier <r.meier (at) wpkg.org>
FIX: Forcing OS to write logfile in Unicode to fix exception 800a0005 when
      writing unicode characters to the log on OS with non-unicode 
      settings set to languages like "Chinese (Hong Kong SAR)".
      Fixes bug 291. Thanks to "isd".
FIX: Setting running state in registry (HKLM\Software\WPKG\running)) on WPKG
      Thanks to Niels Thiele for reporting this on the mailing list.

WPKG 1.3.2-RC2 has not been released yet. Though you can get the latest 
wpkg.js from Sourceforge:

(Download it using the "Download this file" link on top of the page.

Thanks for reporting.

best regards,
