Is it possible to run a program made and compiled in VC++ .NET on a computer that does not have the .NET framework installed? Just wondering because needing the framework when you''re not developping seems stupid. I''d imagine that there''s some option in VC++ to turn off all the extra things that go into .NET programs that make boxes without the framework dislike them. So... is there? and if so, where/what is it?

VC++.Net can make native applications that do not require the .Net framework, but obviously they can''t use any of its features. All managed applications require the framework.

In the properties page for the project, go to the General page and set "Use Managed Extensions" to "No" for the project, if its not already No. "No" is the default for any project type that doesn''t have the word ".NET" in it.
