Tried to compile and run a helloworld written in C# using the MS 
compiler but mono's corlib.
Did the following,
1. Cleared all the path setting on my Win2K workstation
2. Copied the files csc.exe, cscomp.dll, cscompui.dll to the 
directory containing my hello.cs file
3.Copied the corlib.dll from my mono/mcs build to the same 
3. Ran the following at command prompt
csc /nostdlib /noconfig /r:corlib.dll hello.cs

Compilation succeeded, but on execution of hello.exe the following 
Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 
System.Object from assembly corlib, Version=, 
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null because the parent does not 

Now tried the following
1. Renamed the mscorlib.dll in my 
c:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705 folder

This time on executing hello.exe the following error doalog 
CLR Error:80070002
The program will terminate now

Any clues as to why this is happening?
Is there anything specific i need to take care of if i want to use 
mono's corlib with MS's compiler?
