Where else to put about button?

I need to add an About button to a winform app.  The screen I want to add it on is the first screen.  The button doesn't really go nicely anywhere and is odd since it seems out of context.  I can add a menu bar and put the About link there.  However, the app doesn't have a menu bar and the About will be the only item in it.

Is there a better more elegant way to include access to About information?

do you have some kind of logo in your application? you could make it clickable to get your about box. You could also handle a right click context menu in which you would add an about link. Yet another option could be a splash screen displaying your about information...
Standard practice is to include such information in Menu -> Help -> About...
If you need to include information somewhere on the main form using a LinkLabel may be fitting better than a button. for example somewhere at the bottom you could have 'About the program' link in small print.

I'm considering going with the context menu suggestion.  If nothing else, I'll follow the Help menu standard mentioned by lof.
I believe brettr's comment is good one. I'd go with context menu myself. If you don't want to have main menu - context one is nice alternative.
