Hi Duane,

I am using the MonoMac bundling process (Project->Create Mac Installer->Include Mono in application bundle->Don’t link assemblies->Create Package).

Here are the relevant version numbers:
MonoMac - 1.0
Mono -  2.10.2
MonoDevelop - 2.4.2
Mac OS X - 10.6.8.

Kind regards,

From: Duane Wandless [via Mono] [mailto:ml-node+3638611-294075271-249233 at n4.nabble.com]

What "bundling" process did you use?  And what version of Mono are you using?

I have an app which uses System.Drawing.Image.FromFile. The method works
without any problems when debugging the app through MonoDevelop. However,
when the app (bundled with Mono) is running on a Mac which doesn't have Mono
installed, System.Drawing.Image.FromFile throws an exception:

System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type
initializer for System.Drawing.GDIPlus ---> System.DllNotFoundException:
 at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Drawing.GDIPlus:GdiplusStartup

useEmbeddedColorManagement) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
 at System.Drawing.Image.FromFile (System.String filename) [0x00000] in
<filename unknown>:0

Has anyone else encountered this error? If it's occurring because the
bundling process didn't include gdiplus.dll, do you know where I can find
this DLL?

I would be most grateful to receive your suggestions.

Many thanks.
