Build Visual Studio 2008 Windows Application into exe (dll's?)

Hello,

Built code using release mode and installed .NET framework on the machines that I intend to install the application.

The VS solution contains references to charting packages, i.e. MS Chart Controls dll.  Where do I add these references?  I was told that the executable and references should be added to a folder on the machine.  There is also a csv file the program reads.  I'm unsure how it works with file paths etc.

Do I add a direcory on the C:/ drive, that contains a bin directory with the exe and the dll's?

Perhaps you might benefit from this tutorial.  It walks you through creating a simple C# executable application.  It should give you a good start if you havent done this before: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0wc2kk78(VS.90).aspx
