You should be able to open any VS solution in MonoDevelop and build it.

Except for this: VS adds a reference to System.Deployment which almost
nobody uses and mono doesn't have. Just remove the reference from the
project (if that causes errors in VS then you'll have to fix those first in

Generally speaking if it builds with VS and it doesn't on mono, it's a bug.
In any case it's hard to say unless you include compiler output/errors.

Yes, you should be able to.

It's however hard to tell more unless you give more information (what's the
errors in MonoDevelop / command line?, which versions of MonoDevelop / vbnc
are you using?)
