Hello Martin,

The solution files that we have on the tree have not really been tested.

I am currently working on fixing a few fundamental bugs in our build system
and once I do that, I should be able to get solution files that work with
MonoDevelop or Visual Studio to work.

Sadly, I have very little time, but I will try to finish it this week.
