what do you mean by nothing happened?  after you hit enter, did the cursor
move down one line and sit at the beginning of a blank line or did it
reprint something like "grantcrawford at localhost$" (the text that shows up
when you open up a fresh terminal)?

cd /Users/grantcrawford/gcApplications/NinjaTrader/bin
mono NinjaTrader.exe

Windows has a specific search path that it looks for DLLs in, and its
possible that mono is checking your current directory (and not the
NinjaTrader/bin folder) for some needed DLL.  Of course, if this were the
case I would expect it to spit some error out...  You can try

mono --debug NinjaTrader.exe

that might give you some more information.

best of luck!
