You could have a look at an MFC based application - C++ (with MFC) and no .NET components in sight.

Well, Windows Forms are specific to .NET, see ("Windows Forms Overview") and ("Windows Forms") - so, unfortunately the answer is "NO", since Forms do not work without any .NET framework. If you want to build native apps, you will have to resort to MFC, Qt, wxWindows or any other framework of your choice - or plain Win32.
if you post your current form of vs2008 we can tell you whether that can be done with mfc (and what efforts are needed).

to have an executable which runs without installed runtime you need to use mfc statically linked.
