No .NET programs will run without the framework. That's the whole idea. Prgs are compiled to an intermediate state (the CLR), which is then connected with the specifics for the platform (the hardware/OS/software collaboration) only when the program is actually run. What it is connected to is the framework for that platform...

  Shell(My.Computer.FileSystem.CurrentDirectory.Name _  
        & "\Setup.exe", , , )
  Shell(My.Computer.FileSystem.CurrentDirectory.toString() _
        & "\Setup.exe", , , )
        (or some such way to get the string that represents the folder) work? (You can't actually join a folder to a string. They are different animals...)
