1. ;) Tell your users not to use Large font. When installing my software, few times I changed setting to Small fonts and they agreed:
"It really looks better"

2. Only Splash screen looks really bad, because picture does not cover full form. To prevent this ugly thing:
    dx = Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
    If dx = 15 Then
        Set Me.Picture = LoadResPicture(2, vbResBitmap)
    Else  ' dx = 12, Large Fonts, no picture, sorry
    End If

Of course, if 1. won't work, you will have to add another picture for dx=12.

Don't think there is any better.
If you open vb5ide.dll in resource editor, you will see it has 6 different splash screens pictures.
