Use an installer, like all real world programs do these days. Most used are NSIS or Inno Setup (both are free)
Thank you. It gave me some way. Another question, Is C program portable ? (I mean portable in windows platform ) When i built my project it is creating the ".exe" file. Should i consider as the final copy ?
I apologized if i have embraced you. But we haven't taught in schools nor i found this topic in any of my books.I think i should be taught that how to distribute your C program to client and what are the limitations of it.

It usually depends on how compiler is configured or whether you used static or dynamic linking.

The best way to check is just attempt to run the EXE file on a fresh installed windows system and see if it runs there.

You can also use tools like Depedency Walker:
