First Time Only

Is it possible to make a program do something ONLY the first time its ran?

What I want to accomplish with this , is to set the programs options up to the users likings. This shouldn't happen every time the user starts the program , only the first time.

I've looked over the help file with no luck.

You could have your program check for a registry key and if it wasn't there bring up the options prompt. When the options had been selected it could then write to the registry.

You could make it create a file with the users settings, and then make it see if the specific file doesn't exists then it should ask for the settings else it should just continued.

Or else you could write to the registry.
