Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums and hopefully I'm posting to the correct forum.
I've been wondering this for quite some time, why it takes so long to start/launch compiled Windows Forms applications from VS.NET 2003/2005 (C# or VB
.NET)? Even if I create a new Windows Forms application with no additional code and compile the program, it still takes about seven to fifteen seconds to launch the app. The best I can figure that this is because Microsoft utilizes a runtime environment similar to Java's so it's almost as slow as emulation. Does anyone know of a way to speed up the time for an app to run? Otherwise, is there a way to quickly load a start-up screen with a progress bar to let the user know the program is loading. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
