Default Running executable file


   I have just started learning VB 2005. Earlier, I used to work on VB6. There, I used to create executable file (.exe) and run on any PC.

In VB2005, I created an exectable in XP PC ( VB.NET is installed in this PC). In other Win 98 PC, ( where VB.NET is not installed ), this executable does not run . It gives error - 'MScoreerr.dll not found' ). The program is very simple - calculation of square root.

  Is it required to create setup file for this simple application ?

It doesn't matter how simple the program is... it could be nothing at all, and it still won't work. Fundamentally, any .NET program requires the .NET framework (the term "framework" implies that all application are built, and thus run, upon it).

A setup is not required, but the framework is.
