Which controls are you trying to use? There might be existing .Net equivalents available that remove the need to use legacy ActiveX components.

for example the xp controls have the progressbar control(ok... the .NET have it too), but with that wait style(like that bar you see in windows xp, when you reboot the pc).
i only need to know how can i use 1 wait progressbar in that way. but if i can use the xpcontrols better

I'm confused.

The .Net progress bar just does wait when Style property set to Marquee. It doesn't stop. Unless MarqueeAnimationSpeed is set to 0.

Have you got Enable XP Visual Styles set in the project properties?

I just tried it and it works, so if it's not working for you it's certainly a problem with your computer. Is this the same computer on which you've had a lot of trouble regarding custom themes? If you're not using unmodified Microsoft-blessed themes, I think your first step should be to try it out on a machine that hasn't been modified. If it works there, you know there's something wrong with your current theme. If changing back to a default theme doesn't work, odds are your meddling with the themes has corrupted something and your themes are broken. If changing back to a default theme works, then you know for sure it's your theme.
