To add to what Jon said, once you have copied your application to a 
computer were mono-1.0.2-gtksharp-1.0.2-win32-0.7.exe was installed and 
go to the Windows Start Menu.  You should select Mono-1.0.2 Command 
Prompt from the Mono 1.0.2 for Windows menu.  This action will open a 
Windows command prompt environment that is pre-configured to run Mono 
applications in Windows.

To run your application type something that looks like this.

    C:\Documents and Settings\joecool>mono D:\LocationOfMyApp\MyApp.exe

Regardless of it being a Gtk# or other type of application that you 
built in Linux you will probably get the biggest chances of a successful 
run with the above mentioned procedure -- provided you did as complete 
of an installation of Mono as possible.

In the event things don't work for you copy the output of the console to 
a text file and then mail it to this list for more assistance.
