I mostly use Linux now so I can't really give any details of how to
fix the problem, but I can try to give you some pointers.

It looks the the GTK# assemblies have been installed in the Mono
Runtime's GAC, but you are running the executables with Microsoft's
.NET Runtime. You need either to
1) install a version of GTK# that installs into the .NET GAC, or
2) run the exes with the Mono Runtime, i.e. "mono helloworld.exe".
IIRC the installer puts a shortcut in the start menu for a console
with the Mono environment set up properly.
