  • Hi IconMan888,

    You can include .NET Framework package with your application installer.

    As far as I know, Visual Studio can help developer to automatically install the prerequisite prior to the application.

    For ClickOnce, please right click your project >> go to Properties >> Publish tab >> click "Prerequisites....".
    For setup project, please right click your setup project >> go to Properties >> click "Prerequisites....".

    In the Prerequisites dialog box, you can select .NET Framework you want to deploy and choose:

    - If you want to deploy the installers for the prerequisites to a vendor (Microsoft), click Download prerequisites from the component vendor's web site.
    - If you want to deploy the installers for the prerequisites to the same location as your application installer, click Download prerequisites from the same location as my application.
    - If you want to deploy the installers for the prerequisites to a different location, click Download prerequisites from the following location and enter a local path, URL, or file-share location.
    (You must make sure that the installers for the prerequisites have been copied to the specified location with a subfolder for each prerequisite.)

    Thanks
