I have a VB.NET 2005 application that should start up in a minimized state.  The code sets
Me.WindowState to 1 at the end of the Form Load event but the application window opens normally.

I put the following as the last bit of code in the Form Load event:
MsgBox("Load Ending -- WindowState: " & Me.WindowState.ToString(), MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly)

The message box says the WindowState is Minimized yet the form opens in a normal window.

What am I missing to have the application start minimized?
