Marquee progress bar never scrolls

I have a progress bar set to style marquee, marquee animation speed=100 but nothing is ever scrolled in the progress bar, the progress bar is on a form that I call in my code

            frmMarquee = new frmMarqueeBar();
            frmMarquee.Show();
            backgroundWorker1.RunWorkerAsync();

then after the background worker is done it closes the Marquee form, any ideas as to why the progressbar never displays anything.

Attached is a picture of what the form looks like, the progress bar never does anything but stay like it is in the picture

Have you enabled VisualStyles for your application:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.application.enablevisualstyles(VS.80).aspx

ie. Does you Main method look like this:
Application.EnableVisualStyles();
Application.SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(false);
Application.Run(new Form1());

Open in new window
