how to do in order to get the form1 only once, when we install into a new machine

hello skp03 !
i think u have to use xml file. when u run ur application first time then a form1 is load first, put ur code to chk that the xml file is present in directory if yes then hide the form and load the form2 , and also create the file , next time when ever u run ur application ur form1 chk that file is present form1 quickly load form2 and hide it self ,this is not the ideal solution , but i think it will work fine
Hope This Will helps You
