[Gtk-sharp-list] Newbie - Error in Windows 10 compiling c# with GTK

Likely the tool pkg-config is not in your path, that is usually part of the Mono installation.

But do not worry, pkg-config is not technically necessary, it is just a convenience.   You can instead reference the gtk-sharp library directly.  Say the library is in c:\mono\lib\mono\gtk-sharp-2.0, you can do:

mcs hello.cs –r:c:\mono\lib\mono\gtk-sharp-2.0\gtk-sharp.dll

Hi. I'm a newbie to Mono and GTK, so be kind?

The following is a sample of my test code:

*using Gtk;
using System;

class Hello
    static void Main ()
        Application.Init ();

        Window window = new Window ("Hello Mono World");
        window.Show ();

        Application.Run ();
Using OS X the following command line compiles and runs the C# code, with no
*mcs hello.cs -pkg:gtk-sharp-2.0*

I get this error when run on Windows 10:error CS8027:
*Error running pkg-config. Check the above output.*

What am I doing wrong?
