Description Ryan Boggs 2013-05-23 22:36:39 UTC
Updated Mono on my Mac OS X 10.7.5 to version 3.0.10 and now whenever I try building a visual basic application, I receive the following error message:

vbnc: Command line : error VBNC2017: The library 'Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll' could not be found.
There were 1 errors and 0 warnings.

I get this message when compiling via command line and through the Xamarin Studio.

Please let me know if additional information is needed.

I can reproduce this problem, and it looks like it's already been fixed.

Unfortunately I don't know how mono-basic is built and packaged for release, so I can't confirm it - can you have a look, Duncan?

Just tried this with Mono 3.0.12 and it seems to be working again.  You guys might wanna add this to the changelog for this release.
