While my program loading, I have a splash screen. After the program is done loading my Splash-screen closes and the main form (form1) shows (all good up to that point). But the problem is after the Splash-screen I cannot close form 1, nor can I move it. here is what have.

Startup Form:
Form1

Splash-screen:
Splash-screen1

as soon as I disable the splash screen, Form1 can close, minimize and move, but when i enable the Splash-screen it stops working.... any ideas?
( I am using vb.net 2010)

In the properties of your VB Project, there's one option called 'Splash screen'. There you should select your splash screen form, and then the splash screen functionality will be implemented. :)

Alexpap That is exactly what i did! and when form 2 shows.... i cannot control the window (close or move it )
