It would probably help if Windows had drag-and-drop application installation, but don't hold your breath....

Easily done with .Net applications, provided it doesn't need to access the registry.

application can mostly be designed like that but some shared library are considered common enough among dev.
static linking is nice and fast but is not considered as disk space wise. Plus an OS panel for install/uninstall is quite common and useful when wisely designed ( see : package manager in most linux distros ).
dotNet doesn't solve the problem but help with the commonly known 'dll nightmare' where shared library version are overwritten by older version
