When installing the product, you get a database error... I dug into your product xml and found a few things you want to change.

The install and uninstall code only worked after making these changes.
INSTALLCODE
Look for the following...

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

...and change it to

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

UNINSTALLCODE
Look for the following...

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

...and change it to

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The changes here, are for those of us who are using 3rd party styles and have more than one images directory. The way you have it, the user would have to alter the code to point to the correct misc directory.

MISC IMAGES PATH
Look for the following...

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

...and change it to

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

A simple "you forgot table prefixes" would have sufficed.

Before installing, can you answer the question of it can be made to display for a user only ONE time based upon a stored value or cookie?

I really want this but I dont want to burden users every time they open a forum.

Thank you for your efforts.
