During the execution of some big operations (like database init.) the screen is inactive and in the bar shows "Not Responding". I should use a progressbar to show that the app it's working but the screen is inactive.
How can I have access to form? How can be this problem solved?

Try using DoEvents() several times during the big operation. Does this solve the problem?
