Create a form with no borders (borderstyle = bsNone) or title bar.

In your project (.DPR file) do this:

Var
  TheSplash : TMySplashForm;

Application.Initialise;

TheSplash := TMySplashForm.Create(Application) do
TheSplash.Show;
TheSplash.Update;

// Do all your other form creating etc here

TheSplash.Close;
TheSplash.Free;

Application.Run;

Cheers,

Raymond.

Thanks Ray, that works, but how do I create say a 2 second delay before the logo disappears, at the moment it shows and disappears in an instant.
