deploy a windows service application

Hello,

When I build setup solution in VB.net, I got a warning

************************************************** ********
"WARNING: This setup does not contain the .NET Framework
which must be installed on the target machine by running
dotnetfx.exe before this setup will install. You can find
dotnetfx.exe on the Visual Studio .NET 'Windows Components
Update' media. Dotnetfx.exe can be redistributed with your
setup."
************************************************** ********

I am confused why we should install .net framework (23mb
file) on every client machine on which a .net application
will be installed. Can someone help me on this?

Thanks in advnace!

BC dot net apps need the framework to run. You can't run your app without
it.

Thanks so much.

After I installed .net framework 1.1 on a client machine
and run setup.exe, I couldn't see this application
installed since it supposed to be shown on contol panel |
administrative tools | services). It looks to me somehow I
need to copy myproject.exe file. Does anyone have
experience on this?

Thanks!
Jane
