[Mono-list] Can't Port Winforms App [newbie]

I'm trying to follow the Mono 
http://www.mono-project.com/Guide:_Porting_Winforms_Applications Guide:
Porting Winforms Applications .  When I get to the point of  
Trying It Out , I see unexpected results...

[Newbie Alert: I'm new to Mono, Linux, Gtk, etc., so this should be
low-hanging fruit for all you Mono Monkey heroes out there.]

When, from the "Mono Command Prompt", I invoke:
the app I built in VisualC# starts and operates as expected.

However, when I invoke:
    mono MyApp.exe
[with output redirected to an error log and MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug], it
appears that DllImport is unable to locate /libc /and /X11/.

I don't understand why Mono is trying to locate /libc /and /libX11 /for my
/Windows /application?  What [basic setup] am I missing?

Background info:
    Visual C# 2010 Express
    Mono installed using the 
Windows Combined Installer  [WCI].
    Gtk# installed using 
http://download.mono-project.com/gtk-sharp/gtk-sharp-2.12.10.win32.msi Gtk#
for .NET .
     http://mono-project.com/MoMA Mono Migration Analyzer  installed.

As a heads-up, when I installed Mono using the WCI, I was able to
successfully follow the instructions on the 
http://www.mono-project.com/Mono:Windows Using Mono on Windows  page to the
point declaring, "If you get this far, you have a working Mono
installation."  However, the next steps related to Gtk# failed...  In my
Windows Mono Group, none of the Applications [Start | Mono 2.10.8 for
Windows | Applications] exist -- the shortcuts point to non-existent files
[as though portions of installation failed(?)].  This, I initially ignored,
