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

See my comments here on overriding the MinimumSplashScreenDisplayTime () property for your splash screen:

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 understand...it'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...  =)
