If you want transparent binary compatibility, without user installing any
additional software, Java might be they only way to go.

With some reservations, mono is a good alternative. You'll have to be careful: 
not all WinForms will work with mono, but you might find this an attractive
option for to make a small good looking application.

Finally, you can always pick up a scripting language of your choice and
bundle it with your installer.
