Why can't I run my program on other computers without Visual C++ 2008 Express installed? I've been googling it for a while and as far as I know it happens because of the .NET Framework version wich is not compatible. What I wanna know is, if I'm right, how can I set my Win32 application not to use the .NET Framework or to use a lower version?

If you're developing native apps then you don't need to worry about the .NET framework. What you need is to install is the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable on the PC that's going to be running your program. There's all kinds of info on deploying your Visual C++ apps here.

What I like to do for my apps is use Inno Setup to install all of the program files and then start up the installers for the Visual C++ Runtime or .NET framework or whatever it is I need installed.

It would help if you tell us exactly what happens when you try.
Do you get an error mentioning a particular DLL, for example?

It says:
This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

That's the generic you don't have the VS2008 runtime dll's installed error. There are numerous thread about it so just follow MJP's advice.
