Listen for a good friendly advice: develop a good application. And one of the best "features" should be its ability to work without installation immediately, no matter where you copy it. In worst case, it might install what's needed in Registry, so you only provide uninstall procedure.
 
Finally, Microsoft started to highly encourage this "installation" style. The very best open-source product also work like this, and some others support "portable" option, which in modern jargon simply means that the user can choose MSI installation or self-installation.
 
You say your application is small. Even better: it means that this is your very best option.
 
If you don't want to follow a good friendly advice, create a standard Visual Studio Setup/Deployment project from a standard template, follow the instruction and make the installation; this is quite easy. And suffer from highly redundant and boring activity. Especially redundant for a small project.
