The final steps of windows applications?

If I have a small windows application that works great when I run the 'debug', what steps do I need to take so that it is a standalone appliction, so that I can distribute it out to my co-workers? Any good websites that show how to package programs?

    If it's small, and has no dependencies (dlls, files, reg entries etc) then you can simply copy the .exe file out of the debug folder and distribute - your co-workers will need the appropriate .Net framework installed of course.  

    If there are lots of dependencies, it may be necessary to build a setup/msi for it - not sure what capabilities there are in Express for this.  You could of course manually package the files up.
