Default Deploying Applications while installing .NET frame

I created a VB.NET application and subsequently an .MSI installer that I would like to install on any system. One problem I found is installing it on people's machines who have not installed the .NET Framework files.

Is there a way to incorporate the .NET Framework installation (if not already installed on the user's machine) into my application's installation?


Or how can I develop an application using VB.NET without it relying on .NET Framework being installed on the end-user's machine?

In setup project properties, in Prerequisites URL, Settings, choose option "Download prerequisites from the same location as my application", leave the uppermost check box checked and make sure that .Net Framework 2.0 is selected list the below.
This adds a folder called dotnetfx folder to your setup and on machines where .NET framework is not detected your setup will first install framework from the dotnetfx folder.
