Yep, .NET Applications always need the .NET Framework to be installed on the target machine.

I think some 3th party tools exist that can modify your exe to be able to run without the .NET Framework, but I never used any of them, so I cannot give you advice about that.

One such tool is ThinApp:

This is NOT a cheap route to go...

Why is that so important?  The .NET Framework is not that bad.
And you can create an installer that downloads and installs the .NET Framework if necessary, or if you distribute your app on a CD, you can add it to that CD so the download is not required.
