I have written a windows application with 2008 express
I figured out how to publish it and put the files on a cd but

    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 2008 express
