Default Form Startup Order

Quick question for someone, how do you change the startup order of the forms? They are already created however I require the splash screen to load first. Need to know how to change it.

In the VB IDE, open up the Project Properties dialog. On the General tab there is a "Startup object" drop-down, just choose your splash form here and it will be the first form loaded when the app starts.

You can also Create a Sub Main and load your forms there.
Here you can also do some validation etc before you show a form.

You have to set the Startup object to Sub Main then.
