Method #1:
Using a setup (setup.exe/.msi), install the application on the
customer's PC.

Method #2:
Create a directory on a web server and copy all application files and
dependencies to the bin folder in that directory, add a shortcut on the
customer's PC that points to the .exe on the web server.
Thank you in advance!
