Description Arthur Khusnutdinov 2017-08-20 10:19:12 UTC

I've discussed Mono msi distrib in the https://gitter.im/mono/mono with https://github.com/akoeplinger Alexander Köplinger and found, that there is no mono static lib bundled into the msi distrib.
Alexander said 

we ship the MSVC-compiled runtime as part of the windows msi. if that one is missing monosgen-2.0-static.lib needed for mkbundle we should fix that (i.e. file a bug please)

So, please, fix your msi building process to include static lib of the mono into the newest alpha, beta and stable msi releases.

Thank you!

P.S. The same issue for 5.2 version fixed in https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=57892 , but this issue for 5.4 versions installer. When I opened https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=57892 , I expected, that issue will be fixed for 5.4 version too, not only for 5.2 versions.
