+Bug#: 51518
+Product: Mono/MCS
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: cygwin under Windows XP SP1
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: Misc
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+Summary: mcs does not compile System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show
+Description of Problem:
+mcs does not compile System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show()
+but mono runs it if compiled with Microsoft csc.exe (with warnings)
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Install cygwin on Windows XP SP1
+2. download and compile latest mcs and mono
+3. type in attached C# source code and compile with mcs, then csc, then 
+run with mono
+Actual Results:
+mcs fails to compile the attached c# source code:
+Book.cs(17) error CS0103: The name `System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show' 
+could not be found in `Book'
+Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
+mono runs the code if compiled with Microsoft csc.exe, but there are 
+** (Book.exe:2944): WARNING **: Failed to load 
+library .\libwinnt.dll.so.dll (libwinnt.dll.so): The specified module 
+could not be found.
+** (Book.exe:2944): WARNING **: Failed to load 
+library .\libwinnt.dll.so.dll (libwinnt.dll.so): The specified module 
+could not be found.
+Expected Results:
+mcs should compile anything from System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox as the 
+status page of Mono says that this class is fully supported
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+I am running through the .Net c# examples in
+which is the MSDN Library, Visual Studio .Net 2003 | Visual Basic and 
+Visual C# | Samples | Visual C# Code Example Topics | General Language 
+Example Topics | Code: Reading Class Data from an XML File (Visual C#)
+Here is the code from the MSDN:
+public class Book
+   public string title;
+   static void Main()
+   {
+      Book introToVCS  = new Book();
+      System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer reader = new
+         System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer(introToVCS.GetType());
+      // Read the XML file.
+      System.IO.StreamReader file= 
+         new System.IO.StreamReader("c:\\IntroToVCS.xml");
+      // Deserialize the content of the file into a Book object.
+      introToVCS = (Book) reader.Deserialize(file);
+      System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show(introToVCS.title,
+         "Book Title");
+   }
