I want to prevent this dialog box from occurring whenever I open Visio for the first time. Can this be prevented from opening by making any change in the registry keys?

    Hi @Anvay Singh

    Could you please tell me how do you install this Visio Professional 2019?
    I suggest you run ODT and configuration file (.xml file) that includes <Display AcceptEULA="TRUE" />, such as following one:

      <Add >   
       <Product ID="VisioPro2019Volume" >   
         <Language ID="en-us" />        
    <Display AcceptEULA="TRUE" />  

    If the step does not work, please go to Registry Editor, and set or add following keys:


    PLEASE NOTE: Your use of this software is subject to the terms and conditions of the license agreement by which you acquired this software. For instance, if you are:

    Besides, please also make sure the data value of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\General\ShownFirstRunOptin is 1, which is to disable "ShownFirstrunOptin".

    (Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Before you modify it, please remember to back up the registry for restoration in case problems occur.)
