Creating an animated splash screen like office 2010

How can I create an animated splash screen like the one in Office 2010 using C#?

Answer

Is this question about winforms or wpf?

If it's about wpf:

An animated splash screen is not more than a wpf window showing while your "Main Window" is loading. You can design this splash window with Expression Blend as explained by wischi.

You can also have a look at this code project.

For creating some kind of a loading animation: A Simple WPF Loading Animation

Just create a window with an animation defined in xaml and show it while your application is loading -> animated splash screen.

In Winforms:

You may have to override the paint method of a form to create an animation. But it's still showing another window which contains an animation while another window is loading.
