[Mono-list] Embedding Mono on Windows

We are presently evaluating mono embedded for use in one of our windows C++
projects. As it happens we are already building the mono tip on windows
(using cygwin)  and now trying to follow the mono embedded instructions
listed here:


The directions appear rather Linux specific and possibly out of date, so
we’re not clear on how to move forward. In short we would like to link mono
embedded with a Visual Studio 2010 C++ project. How do we generate a mono
import library  (.lib) that is compatible with Visual Studio 2010? Do we
generate this lib a part of the mono build process or can this be generated
from the install package?

One other point, we’re not beholden to the mono tip, we happen to be
building it as part of a separate project so if there is a way to say,
download and install the official 2.10.2 release and then run some
additional step to generate the proper import libraries that would be
perfectly suitable for our evaluation needs.
