.NET - Clickonce Update Application, Add "Whats New" Popup

i have a Clickonce application. It posts to an internal server.
if there is a new version, The client applications are asked to update every time the open the program.

I need a form to open with latest changes, or whatever, ONCE after EVERY update, for EACH user

Any Suggestions?

johnnidip - easiest, but i dont know if it will work if there are multiple users.
james - did not provide details, but ive done something similar which worked.

I save to an xml file onClose, then load it for setting every onLoad of main form.
in the onLoad of my MAIN MDI file, i call this function




  'Whats New
    Public Sub whatsNew()
        Dim assembly__1 As Assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()
        Dim fvi As FileVersionInfo = FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(assembly__1.Location)
        Dim version As String = fvi.FileVersion
        If Me.m_Version = version Then
            'No news
        Else
            Me.m_Version = version
            'open whats new
            Dim F As New frmWhatsNew
            F.MdiParent = Me
            F.Show()
        End If
