    Use the built in Settings system via the Project Properties. Add some kind of Boolean named Registered and put the default value to false. Then check for something like.

    Code:
    If Not My.Settings.Registered Then
        SomeForm.ShowDialog()
        My.Settings.Registered = True
        My.Settings.Save
    End If

    You need to create a module that write the input data in an XML or Database file every time or every close.
