Hi..
In this case you can mange your Forms Like this
Public Class LoginForm

    Private WithEvents obj As Form

    Private Sub LoginForm_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub



    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

         'Here you check if the login is succesful...

         'If So then .....

               .

               .

               .

        If obj Is Nothing Then

            obj = New SplashScreen1

        End If

        obj.Show()

        Me.Hide()

        Dim StartTime As Date

        StartTime = Now

        While DateDiff("s", StartTime, Now) < 5

        End While

        obj.Close()

        If obj Is Nothing Then

            obj = New MainForm

            obj.Show()

        End If

    End Sub

    Private Sub obj_FormClosed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles obj.FormClosed

        Me.obj = Nothing

    End Sub





End Class



'now if want to display the splash screen First...do this:

1.Solution Explorer-MyProject-Application 

you will see at the bottom of form a combo for the Slpash Screen..Select You Spalsh Screen and then press VIEW APPLICATION EVENTS

AND PUT THIS CODE AFTER Partial Feiends Class MyApplication:

 Protected Overrides Function OnInitialize(ByVal commandLineArgs As System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection(Of String)) As Boolean



            ' Set the display time to 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds). 



            Me.MinimumSplashScreenDisplayTime = 5000



            Return MyBase.OnInitialize(commandLineArgs)



        End Function
