Description harlauf 2016-09-29 18:00:05 UTC
System: Ubuntu GNOME amd64
mono version: Stable

When trying to run my project, one of two things happen:

With debugging on, it compiles, and then the play icon flickers to what I believe to be a stop icon, and then back again. No window opens

With debugging off, it says 'Cannot execute /path/to/program'. 

The files in the output are about between 1-2 hours old, according to the modification date. Building deletes all the files, and then seems to put them back again. Cleaning updates the modification date. 

mono seems to run the program normally

In extension to this, any button that involves an outside process does nothing (report bug, open containing folder)

When telling it not to run in an external console it works fine, but 'run with -> custom configuration' and turning on the external console option, it tells me that it "cannot execute /path/to/program"

Fixed with git update of f#, which I then had to compile from source
Comment 3 harlauf 2016-11-29 11:37:33 UTC
Only fixes on old version of monodevelop
