Following up on the Mono installation question, what is the recommended
way to install a Windows application/service for Mono?

For the Microsoft .NET Framework I am using the Windows Installer
MsiNetAssemblySupport property (which tests the file version of
fusion.dll) and InstallUtilLib.dll for managed Installer classes and can
just use my .exe assemblies directly; but how would I best do the same
(possibly in the same package) for a Mono runtime? I understood from
postings to this list that there is no standard installation location
for Mono and that .exe assemblies are not handled by Mono (to not
interfere with .NET) but rather have to be supplied as argument to
mono.exe. So how do I find out how to configure my shortcuts / services,
is there some registry key(s) or similar I could read? And am I
up-to-date that the Installer classes are not supported by Mono? What
would be the recommended way then to configure the Windows firewall on
