    Are you creating a new project?

    If so, make sure you are creating a "Windows Application" project... and not "Blank Solution"


    If you're just opening one up and the form is not listed in the explorer, and you had created one before, you can bring it back (provided it hasn't been deleted) by right clicking on the project in solution explorer... going to Add... then existing item... and then looking for your form.vb file
