Well, as you're the developer, you can build in to the opening screen (i.e., make it the opening screen) a path that does not let them actually run the application until they click some sort of accept delivery button. A little more sophistication is to return a key that either they need to enter themselves or is stored by you (if an .exe, for example, you have the power!).

I used a similar scheme, many years ago, to enable software extensions to a product. The product had an authorization dongle but that didn't take care of add-ons. To get an authorization code, the user was given a key (actually just encrypted date-time for that moment) and this was combined with a unique value from the device (like cpu serial number) to generate a counter key. That got them authorized "forever" and never bothered them again.

Unless the users are clever hackers and your software is of wide interest to the masses, you can create any sort of scheme that forces the user to acknowledge having the software in order to use it. If you charge per-cpu, then you need to key each to the machine, otherwise it's rather simple
