How are you loading your app?  By loading another form in the Form_Load or Form_Activate of the Splash Screen?  How are you calling that, if so?  

If you are calling the other form in the Load/Activate of the Splash Screen like this:  frmMyApp.Show

Then change that to: frmMyApp.Load  
                               frmMyApp.Show
                               Unload Me          ' Unload the splash

it didn't work properly.
i tried starting the app up from SubMain anda added the code that you gave me and it seemed to work ok..
I may as well just give you the points since it works ok.
