    No can do: .NET applications require the .NET Framework on the target machine, period.

    If you want to create an app that doesn't require the .NET Framework, you'll either have to use a non-.NET language, such as C++, Delphi or VB6, or create a Web application that users access via their browsers.

    If you just want to use it and do nothing more use the .exe file in the bin folder.

    CB77 - That still requires the .Net framework to be installed on the target machine.

    you can solve the problem by deploying ur application ... (making the setup file for ur application).. open ur project and add a new project to that solution from new menu with the name of setup wizard... there u will get a lot of options for delpoying ur application....

    Just creating an installer for your application will still not enable a .NET application to run without .NET. The installer will need to supply .NET or require the user to install .NET. In the end your target machine will still need to have .NET installed on it. Phil Weber got it right.

    If you just want to package .NET so the target machine can run the application, then create an installation.
