You are refering to an installation then "Visual Studio Installer", If you are refering to self extracting exe than use WinRaR SFX Module.

.NET has a built in installer, go to project properties it should be in the settings somewere. or you can download .NET framework and as long as the framework is installed on the computer than you can just copy your files from the bin folder to the computer and it should run.
