Here's an article telling you how to create a threaded application in VB.net: http/support.microsoft.com/kb/315577
Thanks for this valuable reply. but i create a sample app using the given code in visual studio 2008. it shows a error that "Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'ProgressBar1' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on".
finally i found a solution for me.
to create running watch in application,
i) add a timer, and label in windows form
ii) in form load,
timer1 =new timer
addhandler timer1_tick, Addressof timer1_tick
iii) Then double click timer
this runs continuously without affecting the other process in windows form.
