    Splash Screen takes lot of time to load. Infact the idea of splash screen was to tell the user to wait till the application loads. Right now my app takes about a minute to load (since it has to read a database file). Can anyone tell how to speed up loading of the splash screen.

    make a form.. For a splash screen.
    Then refresh the form before anything
    else is done.
    If you want you could have that form
    tell what the program is doing.
    But with visual basic, you must
    refresh the form durring when the
    computer is loading the program.

    Does that help at all?

    place this code on your splash screen's load event:

    Private Form_Load()
    Show
    <place additional code for splash screen>
    End Sub

    the idea here is that you want your splash screen's form to show up before anything else. so you must fix your splash screeen on design time not on runtime.

    But if the program takes up a minute to load... are you sure you have to load the database when the program starts? A minute is pretty long you know...
