Default Windows Standalone app

Does anyone know if there is a way to create an application with VS 2005 that won't require the end user to install the .Net framework? I'm hoping not to have to dig out my VB 6 CD and reinstall it.

Thanks

Mike

I am quite sure there is not. The FrameWork is intrinsic to the whole .NET model.
Even VB6 does not give you this ability, but requires the VB dll. (Of course, that DLL is more installed—found on more machines—for having been around longer.)

Echo,
Unless you are installing in an enviornment that is not extremely updated, its a fair bet that a machine will have one of the 3 versions of the .NET framework on it. (Of course, you could write an app to check the registry and see which version, if any, is installed).

Brian is correct, however, there is no way to run a .NET app without the .NET framework.
