help: do all .net applications require the .net framework?

P: n/a
this may sound like a crazy question but ive read elswhere that you can
remove the dependency for the .net framework by editing the .msi file. is
this true??

ive created an ultra simple app to run on clients machines but they dont
have the framework. totally short sighted by me but any help/suggestions
would be GREATLY appreciated.

cheers,
jc.

All .NET apps require the framework. Some companies have created tools that
will embed the framework classes into your assembly (basically turning your
5K app into a 5M app), but I doubt these tools are beneficial.

Most all XP and alter machines have .NET installed.

Yes. All the .net applications require framework.
From XP ServicePack 2 , .Net framework is mandatory update.
