    I don't know any rad tool for that, but meanwhile can't find any you can search about splash screens, you will be able to make something similar to windows media player masked mode using the default win api

    For C++ you will need a 3rd party library. Fancy UIs are not simple to do via the forms approach or MFC approach. The solution is to use WPF. However I'm not sure how long that will be around so 3rd party library sounds best right now.
