You can use ClickOnce deployment. This makes it very easy because you can publish it from a file share or website. It will install itself when needed and you can also configure it so that new versions are automatically used when available. This is ideal for intranet applications. Have a look at this link to find out more about it:[^]

CodeProject article on ClickOnce:
ClickOnce - Quick steps to Deploy, Install and Update Windows Based Client Applications[^]

Good luck!

You do not need to recode your application.
Just publish your application to IIS server.

For more clarification go through with this article

E.F. Nijboer's suggestion to use ClickOnce is pretty good. Alternatively, providing you can set up the right permissions, clients may be able to run it off a network share. There may be problems with file locking if the app uses config files in the same folder.

Alternatively, if the app uses a client-server model, deploy the clients to the intravet machines, either via clickonce or via sharing a network folder with a setup or msi, and then each client can connect to the server (which may be an app or could just be a database server). That'd be some really old and outdated approach there, but it sometimes works just fine.
