Chris' question is correct and maybe a question for best practises for =
getting Mono apps running on MS.NET:

Is it better to let the windows installer install all DLLs containing =
Mono namespaces (e.g. Mono.Data.SqliteClient) to the GAC of MS.NET, too? =

Or is it better to copy those additional required Mono DLLs into the =
project directory for every single project?

i downloaded this setup (I have never tried mono in windoze before) to =
my 2003 vmware and installed it. seems install worked and "mono =
Helloworld.exe" seems to work too. cool.

but when i try to use a mono assembly (in this case
Mono.Data.SqliteClient) in MS.NET I get:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileLoadException' occurred in =
Unknown Module.

Additional information: Strong name validation failed for assembly =

The program '[3100] WinTest.exe' has exited with code 0 (0x0).

Is this to be expected, or a bug (or both) or am I doing something =
