Dotnet Framework 2.0 Installation on multiple systems

Sorry in advance for this stupid question but I am really a new developer of .NET.
I have developed a data entry application using VB.NET, in visual Studio 2008. While I publish the application using Publish option, in pre-requisites I check the option of .dotnet framework 2.0, then i check download pre-requisite from vendor's website. Once i run the setup exe, it goes to vendors website for download of framework 2.0.

I dont want this to happen. I have already downloaded the .NET framework 2.0 once, & I dont want to download it again & again on all the systems where I install my application. How do i avoid this? Isn't there a way that I simply copy the framework in my USB stick & install on all systems & subsequently install my applciation?Please help me I am really stuck here.

download .net 2.0 redistributable

Just download that, put it on a stick or your network, and install on each client computer. If you used 3.5, just look up the download for that too.

Anyone plz???? I have a deadline for it. Thanks.
Please don't bump your threads so early. Typically you should wait about 24 hours for that. Members live all across the globe, and the one who can help you may not be online at the moment.

Well, Visual Studio 2008 will let you develop in 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5. If you didn't change it from default, it is likely 3.5 framework.

Thanks InsertAlias.

I didn't change it. So that means its done in 3.5..... how do i change it to 2.0..can I do it now after I have developed the application?

To change the version of the .NET Framework for Visual Basic projects
  1. On the Project menu, click SolutionName Properties.
  2. Click the Compile tab.
  3. Click Advanced Compile Options.
  4. In the Target Framework (all configurations) list, select either .NET Framework 2.0, .NET Framework 3.0, or .NET Framework 3.5.
  5. Click OK.
I found this on the MSDN, tested it. It should work.
