Hi Experts.   I've written a very small formless windows app that just moves a file from A to B.   There are no dependancies.

When I publish the app it insists on creating a click once install version with a setup file.    Is there some way that I can just produce an .exe file that I can transfer to the target machine and have it run?    I've tried just moving the .exe from the bin\debug folder of the solution but that just produces the error "Unable to find a version of the runtime"      Any help appreciated.

yes.
You can schedule the exce from Scheduled tasks .

Take the exe from bin\debug or bin\release folder and click on it directly it will run

Or if you want to perodically run it ... schedule it
