executable file of web application?

We have developed a web application using C# .net .Can we make executable (exe)for this web application ?
We want to make a stand alone application like an auto run cd for this web application. Is it possible?How?
Any comments/suggestion will be appreciated.

WTF, it may be possible to do this with a lot of effort, but it ain't meant to do that out of the box.

Steve - more people need/want to do this than you might think.

Yeah, well. I wasn't saying it couldn't be done, more that it is non-trivial.

Look into Cassini, it's the standalone web server that Visual Web Developer Express uses.  Everytime I want to view my project in VWD, it creates a Cassini instance on a random port and serves the pages without requiring IIS.
