how do you publish vb.net 2008 win app on computer with no acces to internet only cd rom

I have written a windows application with vb.net 2008 express
I figured out how to publish it and put the files on a cd but
when I put the cd in a different computer it wanted to access the internet
this computer has no acces only a cd rom how do I build the installer to include the .net framework

When you create the publish package you can select in the prerequisits "Download prerequisits from the same location as my application". This will place the .Net Framwork redistribution package in the same place of your installation.

I clicked build then I clicked publish
I specified the location to publish
then it asked how will users install the application I chose cd
the it asked will the application search for updates or not I chose not
it gave me no option like the one you described what did I miss
I am using vb.net 2008 express
