Does anyone of a free (preferably open-source) utility similar to Xenocode Postbuild that can make a native (.Net Framework independent) executable from a standard .Net .exe


Visual C#14

NGen is as close as you can get (comes with the framework). It'll convert the MSIL binary to native code for the specific platform it is run against. You'll still need the framework though. You can't compile a .NET binary and then take out the .NET dependency requirement. If you don't want the .NET dependency then you'll have to write the code in unmanaged C++ or VB.
