[Gtk-sharp-list] DOS-box on Windows

What I found when doing GTK# when using VS 2003 was that it is better to
create a new winform project. Delete all but the solution files and then
import the GTK# code files.

By doing this I am garunteed to get a "real" win app. (what ever that
is!!!). And it does not stop the code recompilling on my Linux box.

Of course if the project is starting as new on the Win box then you could
create a new GTK# project in VS.
