The way i do it is once a valid key is entered the key gets saved into the registry. When the app loads again it checks the value in the registry and validates it again. If it validates then the form doesnt show.
The code works asif the user had entered the key but its loaded from the registry instead

See Accessing the Registry with VB6 and VB.NET (http://www.codeguru.com/vb/gen/vb_system/directoriesandfiles/article.php/c12067/). Page 1 refers to VB6.
In your app you can use getsetting() in form_load to check the stored value. If its wrong or doesnt exist then show the form.
