I am replying to you and the main mono mailing list since this post is
not on-topic on the monodevelop list.

The application you are trying to run is using P/Invokes to Windows
native DLLs (not managed DLLs).  You either need to contact the
developer and have them use only managed code or have them develop a
Linux-specific version if you want to use their product.  This is a
limitation arising from the way they have coded their application, not
some issue with Mono.
