I have a project which has a very slow process in a part,which doesn't need to have finished in order for the program to continue.So i wish to find a way in order to keep this process running without halting the other code.

At first i thought of using an activeX Exe,but i am not so very familiar with it and it keeps running as a modal process,which halts the rest.

Any ideas?

That's called multithreading, which is not really possible in VB
If you don't have to wait for it to finish, why not make it a separate programme and launch it with as Shell command/

You can use ActiveX with timer and you will get "Asynchronous" execution.

You can use timer but this will check for the out put.

but u can use rais event from your exe that u catch in ur std exe.

Have you tried speeding up the " very slow process" instead?
