I have a program loader that I wrote to check for Updates on the main program. If any, It will Copy the new updates and then execute the main program and close it self. The Main Program will stay running as normal

The problem I have is that when I close the loader, I get an error. Here is my code for the loader.

    Private Sub safPOSStart_Activated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim llOk As Boolean = True
        Dim oInfoRow As DataRow
        Dim DSXmlDataTable As DataTable = New DataTable
        Me.Show()
        Me.Activate()
        m_cAppPath = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory()
        UpdateProgramFiles()
        ShowMsg("Loading Station Application ...")
        Shell(m_cAppPath & "\safPOS.exe", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)
        Me.Close()
    End Sub

This is the error
System.ObjectDisposedException was unhandled
  Message="Cannot access a disposed object.\r\nObject name: 'SafPosStart'."
  Source="System.Windows.Forms"
  ObjectName="SafPosStart"

For VB.Net 2005 use the new Shown() event instead of Load():

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Shown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Shown
        ' make sure the form is fully displayed...
        Me.Show()
        Application.DoEvents()

        ' simulated form loading code...
        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5000)

        ' close the form
        Me.Close()
    End Sub

End Class
