Redistritable Visual C++ 2008 Express

I have completed a Visual C++ 2008/CLR Form project. I would like to make it a standalone program. I mean being able to send it a a single executable to whoever and running on any PC.
Is it possible?  If not, what package need to be installed on the machines, so that they can run the application? Are there any special settings on the compiler/builder side that need to be turned on, in order for it to be redistributable?
Thanks in advance

this tool claims to embed (.net) runtime inside a single binary,
i have no first-hand experience with it but seen an application or 2 passing by that used it, and it appears to perform well.

The .net framework is a framework that can be installed on a pc. The CLR forms require this framework to be installed on the end user's system to run. You might try some of the tools the other experts have listed, they may embed the framework in the executable, which will make the executable extra large 20MB

it shouldnt be 20MB, seeing as it only embeds files needed :)
