VS2005 .NET redistribution problem

I translated my project from VS2002 .NET to VS2005 .NET.
In order to run it on a machine without development studio, I need to add  files from
 Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\redist\x86\Microsoft.VC80.CRT and
Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\redist\x86\Microsoft.VC80.MFC.
The problem is that I have exe files in the different folders and I don't want to copy all dlls to all the folders. I tried to edit dll paths in .manifest files, but the only one configuration I succeeded to run was when exe, .manifest and dll files were in the same folder.

I know that I can create install application, but I want to find another way.

Yes, if it doesn't contain Visual Studio installation.

I also had to install Windows Installer 3.1, but now it works.
