    Stand Alone C# Program?


    I have built a windows application in C#. How do I go about making that a stand alone .exe? Is that possible via Visual Studio .NET?

    Just look into the Release or Debug folder which you can find in the folder of your application. There you will find the *.exe

    raspsul do you mean just the exe or are you looking to be able to copy it to other computers without having to install the .NET componets? because you can't I was wanting the same before but once I found out you couldn't I've gone to C++ instead

    Gladly you can't. That's a great advantage of programming in the .NET environment. You just need to know if the client machine has .NET installed and you don't need to worry about .DLLs you have to bring along with your .EXE. You just copy the .EXE and that's it. It works

    It sure makes me sleep better
