Try running your program this way

mono --debug program.exe


mono --trace program.exe


mono -v program.exe

I had the same issue. I found out using the mono --debug program.exe that
one of my c# commands was not supported by mono. Using just mono program.exe
doesn't give you enough information to see what the actual issue is.
