I am able to run portable programs but i can't install anything. I have no permissions to install .NET framework. My user connects at logon but usually I only work on one PC.

I write little programs in visual studio 2010 and 2012. What can I do to make my programs run similar to the portable apps? Perhaps a different programming language?

May be these posts will give you some insight about running VB.NET app as portable app ... portableapps.com/node/12538 and stackoverflow.com/questions/2110704/… or dreamincode.net/forums/topic/… ...in short it looks like bit difficult to archive it. –  JackLock Apr 16 '13 at 15:58
If the system does not have .NET Framework then the user will be unable to use the application written in a .NET Language. Once the .NET Framework is installeed creating a portable .NET application is trivial. –  Ramhound Apr 16 '13 at 16:03
