Some more things:

Note that most of your modifications are welcome and I like them (especially
that you moved native exe's to bin directory) but there are some other

MonoPosixHelper.dll is missing that is used by some assemblies in GAC. I
don't know how much is it needed or used on Win32, but if it can be used on
Win32 it should be included in the installer.

There is no mono-1.dll as it is included in binaries. The problem is that
the dll's entry point is used to register threads with GC that will not be
called when there is no dll:

As I know if there are no MONO_PATH and MONO_CFG_DIR variables set mono.exe
will default to directories relative to it's own location. If it's true
there should not be any set commands in wrapper batch files. If everything
works without setting environment variables Win32 Mono could be more like
Linux Mono that does not set environment variables and gives you the chance
to define them in console if you want some special behaviour.
