Just look in the folder where you saved your project under in the \bin\release folder, there's where your .exe should be.
Oh and .net framework is ALWAYS requiered when using .net applications.

along with what Renagado said, if the .Net framework is already installed, the installer will know this and will not try to install it again.

Using the application's .exe file doesn't "install" the application. It simply runs it.

It is probably your best bet to create a Setup & Deployment project to create the .msi file. However, these projects are not available in the Express versions of Visual Studio.
