[Mono-list] Mono embedding on Win32?

The static libraries were omitted out of the installer because most
people will not use them.  Also, they take up a tremendous amount of
space. Anybody needing them would get the source to mono and build it.
Building Mono themselves would give them a better understanding of
Mono's internals - to embed in applications. :)

There is no Cygwin nor Win32 nor Linux version of Mono.  The source code
is cross-platform.  Because source code may use auto* tools and you use
cygwin environment to build it does not mean the resulting binaries are
cygwin based.  If they are built using the MingW gcc, then it is a Win32
binary with no cygwin dependencies.  Otherwise, if it is built via the
cygwin gcc, then it requires cygwin.  :-)

wiki out.

Subject: [Mono-list] Mono embedding on Win32?


I downloaded the installer for the beta3 release of Mono for 
Win32. I would like to embed Mono in a Win32 app, rather than 
using Microsoft .NET, because the app also runs on Linux.

Unfortunately, the installer didn't come with any link 
libraries or headers for embedding.

I also downloaded the source, but it seems to be a cygwin 
version, not a Win32 version, and it has no link libraries.

Where can I get the link libraries and headers for using Mono 
as an SDK on Win32? If not available, are there pointers to 
how I can build them under Win32 (not cygwin)?

I googled a bit, and checked the go-mono.org web site, but I 
can't find anything obviously relevant. (Doesn't mean it's not 
there, though, just that my search-fu might be lacking ;-)

  That's what they all say.  They all say "D'oh".
