Is there a way to have the splash screen show for a set amount of seconds and with maybe a countdown clock?

Visual Studio 2010 and VB.Net

    Been in Web Forms the last 4 years and just getting back to WinForms

    Does all that code go in the Splash Screen vb code page?

    Sorry to be dense, but I'm not seeing the process clearly.

    I's a completely different world.

    Start at the part where I say:

        "To do this, click on Project --> Properties, then click on the "View Application Events" button in the bottom right.  You should see this code: ..."

    This will actually open the correct file where you can make the changes.  Go through it step by step...  =)
