Description connerbrennick 2014-09-16 19:38:47 UTC
Currently, I have an application that creates an XML file perfectly on Windows. However, when it tries to save the XML file on a Mac after being bundled, the following error appears:

Error while compiling generated serializer  
(0,0) : error CS0006: Metadata file `/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.8.0/lib/Client.dll' could not be found

The program was bundled this way:

export CC="cc -arch i386 -framework Foundation -liconv"
export AS="as -arch i386"
Mkbundle --static --deps Client.exe Client.dll Library.dll -o client

The XML serialization is located in the Client.dll, and I can't seem to figure out why it is looking for that file in the Mono folder when I thought I bundled it with the program...
