Description dreizen 2013-04-18 16:10:34 UTC
I've installed the beta version of mono (3.0.9) for OS X (10.8) from the mono downloads page.  When I executed vbnc, I received the following error:

$ vbnc 
Cannot open assembly '/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.0.8/lib/mono/4.0/vbnc.exe': No such file or directory.  

As I'd expect, when I looked in the Versions directory I found only 3.0.9, not 3.0.8:

$ ls /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/      
3.0.9   Current

I created a symlink from 3.0.8 -> 3.0.9, after which vbnc worked:

$ cd /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/
$ ls
3.0.9   Current
$ sudo ln -s 3.0.9 3.0.8
$ ls -l
total 16
