I can't help you with the build issue, because the VS.NET build
is unsupported and broken from time to time.

I can provide you a VC++ DEF file for the runtime DLL
(mono-1.dll), that gets installed with Mono's Win32 Installer.

Having this file (see atachment), you don't need to build Mono
with VC++ any more.

Q: How do I generate a LIB file from the DEF?
A: Using VC++'s LIB.EXE tool:

lib /def:mono-1.def /out:mono-1.lib /machine:x86

Q: How do you I compile with VC++ against Mono's runtime DLL?
A: Have a look at this command line and at the sample C code.

cl /W4
    /I"c:\program files\mono-1.1.15\include"
    /I"c:\program files\mono-1.1.15\include\glib-2.0"
    /I"c:\program files\mono-1.1.15\lib\glib-2.0\include"
     monotest.c /MD mono-1.lib


#include <stdio.h>
#include <mono/jit/jit.h>
#include <mono/metadata/assembly.h>

int main(void)
     MonoDomain *root;
     mono_set_dirs ("c:\\programme\\mono-1.1.15\\lib",
     root = mono_jit_init ("test");
     printf ("%d\n",  root != NULL);
