You can use My.Settings.Go to the project properties page then select the "Settings" section (sixth one down the left side). There you can add a settings variable of any type. Pick a name (like FisrtRun) and a type (like Boolean) and set the initial value to True. In your code you can do

If My.Settings.FirstRun Then
    'do initial code
    My.Settings.FirstRun = False
End If

Make sure you select User scope so each user gets their own settings value.

what do you mean by

'do initial code

Whatever you were going to do the first time the users runs the app is what you will put there.
