Create self extracting exe file from Visual Studio App

I have created a user form in Visual Studio.  I would like to be able to email a self extracting file that will install itself on another user's desktop so that they can use my form.  Please tell me how this can be accomplished?

Why don't you create an setup project or use one compressor to create a selfextracting exe file (like winrar or winzip) ?

Ok, what files would I need to include in the zip, or how would I create a setup project?
