NetFramework dependencies on project folder?


I would like to know if it is possible to somehow embed the .dll that my project uses from NetFramework in its own folder. This way, it would not be necessary to install NetFramework on the client's computer, since all dependencies would be found in the program folder.

I realized that the vast majority of great branded software use this device, I just don't know how to do it yet.

Note: I use version 13 of Visual Studio.


This is a fresh feature (as of the date of this reply). It will be included in Visual Studio 2015 and is called Microsoft .NET Native .

If it's earlier than Framework 4.5.2, there's no way. You have to install the Framework yourself.
