I’m building a .NET tool that transfers data from the Fleet Focus asset management system to the CarteGraph maintenance tracking system. The process of transferring the data is slow and involves several steps. I need to show a status meter and a text block showing the current step on my WPF form (or, at the very least, I need a text block showing the current step). What assembly contains the necessary tools to accomplish this?

How are you "transferring data"?  Is it database to database or an import function in the CarteGraph App?

Your long process shall run in a secondary thread and update your progress form by using a Dispatcher.
It is not recommended to execute long/blocking processing from the main UI thread. In that case you would not be able to control a Cancel button.
Here is a complete example:
