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.
