Default .Net Framework Deployment

Hi All,

How MSN Messenger works perfectly on windows 98 without .Net Framework yet it is developed in VS.Net

I developed a small downloadable application in VB.NET using web services. The deployment size of my package is 4 MB Approx. But if i include .Net Framework file dotnetfx.exe with my package its size will increase up to 25 MB. Which is not possible for everybody to download and install.

Is any solution is available to solve my problem.

Thanks

Why do you think MSN Messenger was written in VS.NET?? It may use things like ".NET Web services", but it's not written in .NET.
Otherwise, it wouldn't run on non- .NET computers ;)

There really isn't a solution for your problem. A .NET application needs the .NET framework to run. Period. It's a simple as that.
If you want to offer your clients specific functionality without requiring them to install the .NET framework, you'll have to think of a different type of application, like a Web application, or a "classic" VB or C++ application.

Cheers,

Imar
