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.
