Default Why does it take so long to launch a VS.NET app?

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,

Panuvin
