You need to set the "Active Configuration" for your project to "Release" before you compile. The debug version isn't intended to be distributed.

In the IDE, go to Project > YourApp Properties -> Build, there should be an option for "Configuration" change this to "Release".
The menu location above is based on Visual Studio 2005 so may be different for you. When you compile now you should get a Release folder which contains the EXE that can be distributed. Of course the target machine will still need .Net Framework.
