[Mono-dev] Porting Winforms Applications

The guide to porting Winforms Applications is nice. However the imho the
following sentences are just not true:
"Most of the missing methods aren't too big of a problem either. We can
expect that we will not have ToolTips in our TreeView, and we can't set our
PrintDialog to use the Windows XP dialog. The missing event
ListView.ItemSelectionChanged however will likely be a problem. Because that
event does not exist, it will not get fired, so whatever code we are doing
in the event handler will not get called. "

In just about every case a missing element will just cause the program to
throw an exception (e.g. MissingMethodException) and exit. It is extremely
unlikely that such a program would run at all and if it does it will exit as
soon as the relevant lines are called. It will NOT just not perform the
requested action.

P.S. I also attached an application that can be used to easily start a
program on windows using mono without using the commandline and also offers
debug/error output.
