Thankyou for replay.
In my case, the application have to portable (pendrive)
and the user mostly do not have the admin right
and the application very small (about 5mb only)
if i ship with the .Net Framework installer thats was to huge compare to my
application (150mb+)
even webinstaller also required to download about 50mb, I guess most users
are not willing to do this, they can just giveup my application and use the
other similar.
