Hi there. I have written a small app that ftp's files from the local directory to a remote web server. Ive tested this on my machine and all works fine. Its written in vb.net

My problem is that when I built the app, and tried to run it on another machine, I got the error that means the app needs the framework to run. Is there any way to get this program running without the framework. I thought Executables caontinaed allt he code they needed to run within themselves? I dont have the time or patience to install the framework across the entire company, and having to do that seems to outweigh the benefits of moving all app development to vb.net. Anyone got any suggestions??

Sorry slimshaneey, you need the .net framework for your programm to operate but you can incorporate the .net framework
into the setup file of your program

You will notice that .net executables are generally very small...reason is that most of the code is in the .net framework.
