You do not need visual studio on a client system. Create an install package for the application and install it on the client machine

IIS web server is required to install web application on client system.

Your client's server needs to have IIS installed and configured to be the same as your development machine.
If website has database, you need to install database server and restore database.
I don't think that's an easy task to do automatically with an installer file.

Use Setup and Deployment project. To do this, create a new project, then if you are using VS2008, select "Other Project Types". This option include Setup and Deployment project. Refer to the following sites for step by step instruciton on how to use Setup
- Web Deployment Project for Visual Studio 2005 & 2008 -
If you are in a hurry, it might be better to configure your database manually as it takes some tricks to automate that.
Hope this helps...

Thanks for the link.
I copied my application into the root directory of IIS in the client system running on windows 7 and I created a virtual directory for it. when I access it through an explorer it keeps pointing to a line in the web config i.e "<authentication mode="windows"/>.
and the line above it says:
Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition="MachineToApplication" beyond application level. This error can be a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.
What do I need to do here?

They to this error is "This error can be a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS".
To make a virtual directory as an application in IIS,
- For IIS 6 (as far as I can remember), right-click your virtual directory and choose property. Click "Convert to Application".
- For IIS 7 (my current version), right-click your virtual directory and choose "Convert to Application" from the context menu.
Close your browser, start another instance of your browser and reload your page.
