Run the authentication loop in a separate thread. As you don't say what language you are using to develop the application it's difficult to be more specific.

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
Timer1.start()
iii) Then double click timer
label1.text=timerofday.


this runs continuously without affecting the other process in windows form.
thank you.....
