I developing an add-in using VB.NET for Outlook.

What is the difference between Outlook Forms (which you can create in outlook) and forms created in VB.NET?

I'm trying to create a form that pops up when a user selects a custom menu option. The form will be for them to configure the settings for the add-in I'm creating.

How can I make the form display??

Can I just create a form in VB.NET and use FormName.Show() to make it display? Or, do I need to call it a different way?

Build it in VB.Net. Outlook forms are for sending to a recipient and/or viewing data from Exchange.

Ok, cool. So I should be able to just build it in VB.net and then call myForm.Show() right?

For some reason that doesn't work for me.

After I've built the form, what code would I use to make the form display?

Yep – that should be ok. There is an example at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnout2k2/html/odc_oladdinvbnet.asp about 3/4 of the way down the page – the relevant lines are
Dim fWait As New frmWait()
fWait.show()
fWait.close()
