[Mono-list] Windows Mono IDE

I will be announcing a new version of the installer that now includes a 
new C# project type for Gtk#.  It will be at the same URL as before.  
That new project type may be a bit more obvious in terms of not hiding 
the details of how the different Widgets are created to render your UI.

Even if you do not install the new installer.  Go to the Start menu and 
find "Gtk# for Windows" program group.  Look for the sub menu called 
Applications and you will see something called glade.  Launch that 
application (you could also go to the Start menu, select Run and type 
glade followed by pressing Enter) and you will see the GTK+ GUI 
designer.  Once Glade is running you can go to its File menu and select 
Open and navigate to the location of your *.glade file and load it.

Hope this help
