sshot for the build failure.

apart from bug #63 which can be workarounded by removing build/AddIns/MacPlatform.dll*, I still cannot build MD on Windows (2.6 branch) due to the missing assembly dependency (namely Mono.Addins.dll). It seems the dependency assemblies, which is described as "Mono libraries package" on http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Building_MonoDevelop#Windows, are not in the correct place or the deps must be up to date.

Attached sshot for build failure in full Window.

Do you have the correct path in the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\AssemblyFolders\MonoLibraries ?
Comment 2 Atsushi Eno 2011-08-16 22:33:43 UTC
Yes or No, HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NETFramework\AssemblyFolders\MonoLibraries points to C:\Program Files (x86)\MonoLibraries\2.6 which does exist (as I live in 64bit windows land).
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-11-15 12:11:39 UTC
MD wasn't finding assemblies from assembly folders. I fixed this some months ago. Please re-open if it's still broken.
