I've just finished my gui program and of course I run into a new problem. When I want to start my Gui program it takes about 30 seconds for it to start up. I have to go to my Task Manager to see what's going on.
What I want to do is make a splash screen like the one matlab has, same picture and everything. But I'm very confused. Do I make a new gui with the small picture and then what do I compile it with? Because if I use the Windows Standalone Compiler then the picture will also take 30 seconds to open, or what? And that doesn't solve my problem but only moves it into a new gui.
I would like a dummy script where I can see what is going on, and what I need to do?
I don't understand if the splash screen has the other gui inside of it, or you just make a short-cut where you press the splash screen and when the other gui starts up the splash screen closes.
As you can see I'm totally new to this concept, so I really need some help.

Search for 'splash screen' on the MATLAB File Exchange, there are a number of entries that can do this for you.
Tried a few solutions people have posted, and I find this to work brilliantly! http://www.matlabexperthelp.com/2012/07/13/create-a-splash-screen-for-your-compiled-matlab-gui/
Took me awhile to find it, so I'm now posting it here!
Extremely grateful for their effort, and since it's a VB wrapper, changing icons etc are all possible!
In R2014a, you can select a custom splashscreen icon in the application compiler app:
It will show before the 30s MCR spooling starts.
