Running a .net application without .net

Recommended Posts

I've made a program that has a windows interface made with "winforms" in the .net framework. Is there's a way that I can use it on a computer that doesn't have .net? For example, is there a way to tell VS to put all the nessecary dlls in the same folder as the exe or something like that? Thanks.

It's not possible to run a .NET-application without .NET installed on that machine.
However, you can use a so-called redistributable package: which is an installer that installs everything necessary to run your application on someone's computer. You can download it here

It's about as possible as running a java applet or java application without having the java runtime installed on the computer!
Having said that if people are installing all the optional downloads on windows update and running XP they should have .net 2.0 on their machines by now.
