you have two possibilities:
in your sub main you do a
load frmMainMenu
or frmMainMenu.Show
this would be the choice if you do need to run your sub main at startup.

the second option would be under Project --> Preferences --> you can select your startup object (sub main or any form).
But if you choose this, remember that your sub_main won't be executed unless you directly call it.

Code will be like in

Sub Main()

load frmMainMenu

End sub

or if you want to load when loading application then

Project --> Preferences--> Startup Form
Select from the drop down box
