trying to run .net-application without installing microsoft .net-package

Hello everyone!

I am trying to run a very minor .net-application (autopatcher
for a free everquest server) while avoiding to actually install
the 23megabytes .net basic package that Microsoft seems
to want to impose on everyone using .net-applications.

I have managed to manually place the required DLLs
into the proper directories (so far) but am now at a loss
as to how the machine.config file should look like. Currently
the mini-application is complaining:
"Failed to load resources from resource file. Please check your
Setup."

Since the machine.config seems to be rather big (17kbyte), I
guess I need a properly installed sample to try and modify it
to my liking.

Could anyone here either post a complete machine.config
(preferably the smallest version available) or point me to a
location where the manual creation of that file is explained?

Thank you in advance!

Lars

Generally speaking, you cannot run a .Net application without first
installing the .Net framework. It just won't work.

That being said, there is a product called Thinstall which supposedly
links all the .Net assemblies needed into the application.

You might Google Thinstall and see if that meets your needs.

*sniff* Not even depending on which .net-functions the
mini-application uses?

Gonna check for this, but I won't have much of a chance
with that since I am not on the compiling side of the software
and the developer is unlikely to listen.

Thanks for the reply anyways- I couldn't check earlier because
my internet connection unexpectedly broke down.

Best Regards,

Lars
