When I build gtk# app (simple test app) on Linux with the default configuration, the .exe generated will not run on Windows even with gtk-sharp installed.
I debugged this using Visual Studio 2010 and it told me it was trying to link to Mono.Posix, which was not on the target system, because it did not have mono specifically installed on it - just .net 4.0 and gtk#.
If I build in Monodevelop on Windows, it runs on any platform without requiring Mono.Posix.
If I disabled the opton on Linux Monodevelop called "Enable gettext support" under GTK# settings under project settings, the generated code will run on Linux or Windows without issue.
It's odd that i do not need to disable "Enable gettext support" in Windows MonoDevelop to accomplish the same thing. Leaving it enabled in Windows doesn't result in any problems.
Linux Mono Version: 126.96.36.199 (Ubuntu test version)
Windows Mono Version: 188.8.131.52 (Windows 7)
Oops "Mono version" should read MonoDevelop version Sorry.
This is because GTK# on Linux ships with Mono.Posix 2.0. When compiling with Mono and targeting 4.0 framework, Mono "upgrades" the reference to Mono.Posix 4.0, which is identical except for the version number (due to a historical bad decision).
We really should ship Mono.Posix 4.0 with GTK# on Windows to fix these issues.
I've opened a pull request that fixes this issue: https://github.com/mono/gtk-sharp/pull/115.
