Stand alone exe using Visual Studio
Posted on 2008-10-30
I have a small program that use the System.Net namespace in Visual Studio. And it working fine after i compile it in Release mode on my computer. However, i can't run it on another computer that do not have .Net installed. I had been doing my research online and found that it is a requirement to run the redistribution packet from Microsoft first on the target computer.
Here come the problem. Is there any way of working around it? I do not want to run the redistribution packet or create a setup file (part of the client requirement). Is there a way to build a stand alone .exe file from Visual Studio 2008?
My program require the following file: System.dll, msvcrt.lib, msvcr90.dll.
Any help would be much appreciate
