How do I go about doing this if they do not have the XNA framework installed?
If they need it installed can I somehow package the installer with the setup and run it before it installs the game if necessary?

So in other words you need the XNA 4.0 framework to run a program created in XNA?
Yes. Here is a rundown of methods to distribute an XNA application: http://rbwhitaker.wi...-game-tutorials
Using ClickOnce (the fourth tutorial) is probably the easiest way to distribute an XNA game.
Edit: to clarify, using ClickOnce will ensure that the end user has the necessary XNA libs and .NET libs, and downloading them if they do not.
