"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

VB is not a language thought for multithreading. To do that in VB you must use API calls in kernel32 to create threads.

Because creating threads is system task, means low level and VB is high-level language. Even using API you not always will get needed result...

Pay attention in creating threads in VB: it can be dangerous, especially when debugging in the IDE...

I usually prefer, if I need threads, to create a multithreaded ActiveX EXE. This is stable and works fine.

Hope this helps
