do something on 1st run RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi!

    is there a way to do something specifically on the first run only (like create a new table in sql)? or is it more advisable to always check if the created table exists and if not create it?

     

    thanks!

  • Hi

     

    you check if the app has already run via a number of ways..

    - set a variable in the registry

    - set a variable in a config file

    - etc

     

    however, creating tables in sql and so on is probably something you would better do via custom actions while installing your application:

    Hope this helps you out
