This launch condition is required and cannot be deleted because a dependency on the .NET Framework is present

The .NET Framework launch condition is automatically added to a deployment project for any application that has a dependency on the .NET Framework. The common language runtime must be present on the installation computer in order for the application to run; this launch condition checks for the runtime and halts installation if it is not found.
