HELP - Form doesnt show when in debug mode (VB .net)

Hello,
bit of strange one this, I have a VB .net application that has Sub
Main() as its startup procedure, this then creates and shows a form. Up till
now when I pressed F5 the form would duly appear.

Whats happening now is the project appears to start but the form doesnt
show. The process appears in Task manager but in VB .net the the blue bar at
the top still still says [design] and the usual stop button isnt there and
the IDE just appears to lock, the only way to get out of this is to kill the
IDE & the process in Task manager.

If however I start the project by doing Control F5 the form appears and the
IDE behaves normally.

I created another dummy project that just has 1 form and that shows the same
behaviour.

Anybody got any ideas?

Cheers
Paul

Has this all happened without a reboot ?, have you tried it after one ?
