Hi Alexandre, All,

Yes, I should have checked this. I also tested on Win2K and WinXP

On XP the list of warnings is down to :
 WARNING **: Failed to load function GetDriveType from kernel32.dll
 WARNING **: Failed to load function GetVolumeInformation from kernel32.dll

On 2K, there is an additional:
 WARNING **: Failed to load library uxtheme.dll (uxtheme.dll): The specified
module could not be found.

And GetDriveType and GetVolumeInformation did exist since the dark ages of

Also, nothing warned about is actually used in the sample programs.

So I assume 
1) the glue provided by mono to link to WINE, has some problems linking to
native WIN32
2) You must have WinXP to use WinForms with mono

Can anybody confirm or deny these points?
