Commonly called a "splash screen" and there are many examples of how to do this.

Here is an example:

Create a nonmodal Dialog and show it.

set a timer in the dialog so it dismisses itself after a set amount of time, assuming you dont want the user to have to dismiss it

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

You Can Add a Splash Screen to your application by Cliking on

Project->Add to Project->Components and Controls

and selecting the 'Visual C++ Components' directory from the dialog, in the directory select the 'Splash Screen' and click 'Insert' Button. This will automatically add code to your application.

If you want to add some thin like 'Tip of the Day' you can add it by selecting the 'Tip of the day' in the dialog.

I need to add database dependent info in the splash screen and not a bitmap.

It doesn't matter, the technique is the same.  A window is just a window.  In the code where the bitmap is being drawn, draw it yourself and put your database output there.
