Hi everybody,
I'm trying to compile Mono under VS2008. In README.vsnet said:

VSDependencies.zip must be decompressed under the /mono/ directory
(otherwise you will need to edit all the projects files).
This file can be downloaded from

What does 'under' means? Root directory of /mono, i.e. /trunk ? Or means
/mono itself? Explain please.

Everywhere in VS projects dependencies are pointed into
$(MONO_DEPENDENCIES_PREFIX) directory. Is it means that i need to add the
system variable % MONO_DEPENDENCIES_PREFIX% ? Or set it somewhere in the
solution? I haven't found anything about this. I decide just edit Additional
include directories and Additional libraries directories by-hand, e.g.

libgc, eglib, genmdesc compiles successfully, but monoburg with error:
Error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _g_hash_table_insert_replace
referenced in function _create_term
Tip me please how can I fix this.

Error C2065: 'IMAGE_SIZEOF_BASE_RELOCATION' : undeclared identifier in
\mono\mono\metadata\coree.c:739 and :740
Search in files gives only 2 results for this macro, in coree.c, nowhere

And a lot of Error  C1083: Cannot open include file: 'inssel.h': No such
file or directory
As I could understand this file is generated by monoburg witch isn't

Thanks a lot for help.

Best regards,
Alexander M. Batishchev
