test project

Mono master has a new profile mscorlib and a new compiler which is not detected by MD which will always use dmcs for 4.5 profile causing problem by referencing wrong "old" 4.0 mscorlib.
Comment 1 Marek Safar 2011-11-15 18:06:34 UTC
IntelliSense works but compilation fails with 

error CS0234: The type or namespace name `IReadOnlyDictionary' does not exist in the namespace `System.Collections.Generic'. Are you missing an assembly reference?
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2012-05-02 10:59:16 UTC
Is this still the case? I thought MD was able to use 4.5 now.
Comment 3 Marek Safar 2012-05-02 11:12:32 UTC
It's still the case

Marking dup of the other as it has more info, and the underlying issue is the same.
