Chances are it needs the right version of the .NET framework - the easiest way to make sure it will work is to use an installation program rather than "sending the EXE file" to him.

Try adding a Deployment project to your solution - that should allow you to build an installer with will ensure that everything needed is there.
Try to publish as self-contained:
Publishing your app as self-contained produces an application that includes the .NET runtime and libraries, and your application and its dependencies. Users of the application can run it on a machine that doesn't have the .NET runtime installed.
