Ok I followed your advice on copying the dylib in the app bundle. Still no luck. I then found this:


This helpfull blog post gave me some insights on how to include and load the growl framework. Downloaded the sample code, and the growl framework. It worked perfectly.

However I still can't get my own test project to work. So I created another test project (which i've also included in the google docs link below):

- It includes an Xcode project named "MyFramework" which produces MyFramework.framework
- A MonoMac MonoDevelop project named "MyApp".
- A .cs file and .dll file under Bindings. I've created these bindings by running:

mono bmac.exe -e <path to MyFrameworkBindings.cs> -r System.Drawing

- Referenced the resulting .dll in "MyApp"
- Build the MyFramework framework, and manually copied it into the bundle MyApp/Contents/Frameworks/
- Run it

Every time I get exactly the same error report when running it. 

Test project can be found here:


I must either be doing something very stupid or I didn't quite understood the binding process. Anyways, thank you very much if anyone would be willing to have a look!
