If you are rolliong out the project then you could use IlMerge to fold the required dll's and the executable into one exe file.

ILMerge is a utility for merging multiple .NET assemblies into a single .NET assembly. It works on executables and DLLs alike and comes with several options for controlling the processing and format of the output.
