I am trying to set the position of a form, but it seems to pop up at a random place every time.

            SetParent(testProgram.Handle.ToInt32, Me.Handle.ToInt32)
            testProgram.Show()
            testProgram.Top = 100
            testProgram.Left = 100

or
            SetParent(testProgram.Handle.ToInt32, Me.Handle.ToInt32)
            testProgram.Show()
            testProgram.Top = me.top
            testProgram.Left = me.left +100

I also tried
           testProgram.Location = New Point(10,10)

Have you tried setting the forms StartPosition property to manual?

SetParent(testProgram.Handle.ToInt32, Me.Handle.ToInt32)
testProgram.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual;
testProgram.Location = New Point(10,10)
testProgram.Show()
