Hi, is Mac compatibility not a high-priority issue?  I have gotten no
reply to the following post.

Thanks, -CR

When I execute "mono disco.exe"
on both Windows 7 and OS X 10.6.8 with Mono 2.6.7 installed, it works
fine on Windows (prints out a prompt line) but on OS X I get the
following error message:

       Could not load signature of edu.wpi.cetask.TaskEngine:put due to:
       Exception in thread "main" cli.System.TypeLoadException: Could not
load type 'edu.wpi.disco.Disco' from assembly 'disco, Version=,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.
       at <Module>.main(<Module>.java)

You can download the assembly (3MB) at

Note that this file was created from Java using ikvmc and that
edu.wpi.disco.Disco happens to be the main class and extends

I tried looking at monodis of disco.exe, but there was too much data
for me to figure out.

Thanks in advance,
