I have a managed C++ application. As we know - The JIT step takes a long time when the application is first loaded. Is there anyway to show the user a splash screen during that time?
I was thinking to create another, not-managed, exe that will show the splash screen and launch the managed (.NET) application. I would like to ask for a .NET expert opinion about my idea. Is there a more elegant way to avoid my users staring at an empty screen?
