First, make sure that you have the .NET Framework SDK installed on your machine.  You can get it from: http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/default.asp?url=/downloads/sample.asp?url=/msdn-files/027/000/976/msdncompositedoc.xml&frame=true.

First, launch notepad and enter the following code:
class MyApp {
   public static void Main() {
      System.Console.WriteLine("Hello, world! (from C#)");
   }
}

Then, save the file (I did it under c:\projects).

Next, launch a command prompt window and change directories into the one with your helloworld.cs file.  At the prompt, type in:
c:\Projects> C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\csc helloworld.cs

This will run the C# compiler.  When, it's done, you should be able to run your new app.  At the prompt, just type in:
c:\Projects> helloworld

That should run your console application with an output of:
Hello, world! (from C#)

Finally, to get it to run on another machine, you need to make sure that the .NET Framework redistributable is installed on that machine.  These are the libraries and components needed to run .NET applications.  You can get that from: http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/default.asp?url=/downloads/sample.asp?url=/MSDN-FILES/027/001/829/msdncompositedoc.xml&frame=true.

run it in an open command prompt rather than through the explorer.
