Hi all!
As of recent, I have been attempting to change a startup form using normal procedures (Project --> Properties -->Application --> Startup form) to no avail. The old startup form (login) still continues to work as a startup one.

I tried:

  1. Rebuilding the solution
  2. Rebuilding [project name]
  3. Saving all forms (of course)
  4. Try various setting various forms as startup forms
  5. Closing and re-open the project
  6. Restarted my computer (problem has persisted for days, so computer restarts happens every now and then)

All this to no avail. I don't know why this is happening and how to resolve. Can someone please help?

Given it's been a few days and I haven't been to the office to check out your method, I'm going to write this. "Cheat."

In your startup form, have it change to the next form. Just comment the .Show or such in the startup form or use this startup form as your splash screen.
