Default Problem distributing a .NET application


I developed a .NET application and am trying to distribute it on some government workstations. They all of course have the .net framework pre-installed. So I am just giving out the .EXE file. However when people double-click on it, the application just evaporates with no error. just doesn't run. Is it because computers generally don't run .EXE files because of security problems ? I ran the same application on my home computer and smart screen filter appeared. My home computer has Windows 8. The work government computers have Windows Vista Enterprise.

If it is a security issue I guess I cannot develop .Net windows forms applications. Is that true too?

thanks so much.

It's always better to provide a deployment setup. This can be either ClickOnce or from normal Visual Studio build as well.

Providing a set-up would install the application in their local and will help in identifying issues if any

Thanks a lot. Turns out that the workstations I develop for don't even allow any kind of installation to run. So I had to develop an ASP.net website instead!
