The ones from the Gtk# distribution from Medsphere should work fine.
This method of deployment on Windows makes more sense to me as:
 - last I checked, Mono came with Gtk 2.10 instead of 2.12, which is
the standard right now on Linux
 - it seems unnecessary to use Mono on Windows unless you're using a
Mono-specific library. Otherwise, .NET works perfectly fine and it
standard on basically all Windows machines

Not sure what you're asking here? I don't think you can just drop a
new dll in with a compiled application. You'd have to recompile with
the new version (since the assembly keeps track of what version of the
unmanaged dll it's looking for).
