You can run MPI.NET anywhere you can run C++ MPI programs with MS-MPI.
I know you can do this with Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 and
with Windows Server 2003 (if it has the Compute Cluster Pack
installed), and with the upcoming Windows HPC Server 2008. There is a
free trial version of Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 that works
for 180 days on the Microsft site.

Of course, you can always run MPI.NET applications on a single machine
using the Compute Cluster Pack SDK.
