Running my 'OTC code' application

sure, anyone read the title wondered what is the 'OTC code' (maybe its sth related to programming 8-)??!) , Actually No... It's an application I made for my sister & her collegeus in college, They wanted to make a program that can be used in any pharmacy to check on the Drugs interactions.. (As some drugs may interact & cause toxic doses & many commplications w 7agat kedah...) & that is sth VERY common here in Egypt..
Anyway, they collected the Data & it was my task to make the program.. Actually it was not complicated at all, but it really made me feel Happy... cause its my first time to make sth -u know- USEFUL...

Anyway,back to my main point (the reason that made me write that post)... After I finished the application, I gave it to them to show it to their DR.. but.. ops.. I forgot.. We all know that any program made on .net won't run unless there is .net installed on that device...
mmmmm... I thought.. what should I do then.. I really worked hard on it.. so, I got an idea...mm... just make the CD containing the program an autorun that asks the user to install just the FrameWork of the .net... & after installation, everything will work just fine...
I tried that method & e7l.. my application worked :) .. & ISA they will deliver it next saturday...

so, for anyone making any application on .net... Always remmember that the user is not a programmer like u & doesn't have .net framework to run that application (cause I almost forgot that)...
maybe many who will read that post know that b4, but maybe some doesn't...
Just an experience I wanted to share...
In case anyone has a better solution, Comments are welcomed :)

(BTW, I became a popular character there in the faculty of pharmacy :D)
