Yes, they have to install the .NET runtime (~23 MB download)
to run any .NET programs. It has to be installed once, just
like the Java Runtime (JVM).

If you created an unmanaged C++ program, then no, they don't
need the .NET runtime.

But the great thing is you can distribute the framework with your game/program so that shouldnt be a problem (unless of course its gonna be a download, in which case you need to give a link to the poor ppl) which will be discouraging to most... which sux...

Also, the .NET framework was (or will be) shipped with the service packs for Windows XP. Windows codename Longorn, the next Windows version, contains the .NET Framework by default.

-
CL Game Studios. Probably.

yeah it''s pretty stupid of ms not to have included .net with windows xp sp1 at least. If they want people to start using c# and visual studio 2003 that definitely would''ve helped.
I got visual studio 2003 but i still write all my stuff with vc 6 and opengl since all my executables will run on nt4 all the way up to winxp without forcing people to download a huge file.

Do you really think this option was extensively considered by them? Most likely it has not been done because they weren''t ready for the legal issues that might come up (I''m sure Sun will bitch that MS is using it''s OS monopoly to push it''s app server technologies, blablabla).

Uhm, hello? You can write programs in VC++2003 that have no dependencies on the .NET Framework whatsoever.
