How to make a portable program in C# Visual Studio 2015?

Portable means the program runs immediately and doesn't ask to be added in "Programs and Features" of Windows.

I only know in Visual Studio C# 2015 to press Build->Publish, and publish the program to a setup.exe file with a folder near, and when I run setup.exe it adds itself to Programs and Features...

The program is a Windows Forms Application program.

Answer

Change the build configuration to: Release

Build the solution.

Zip the files in the bin\Release folder.

Unzip on another PC.

Run the exe file.
