Are you on Windows or Linux?

You need to have mono-basic installed, it should be included in the Windows
installer, for Linux you'll have to grab the package separately.

To check if you can compile VB programs execute 'vbnc' (the VB compiler) in
the mono command prompt.

Here is a simple hello world app, put it in a file (helloworld.vb), compile
by executing 'vbnc helloworld.vb' and then execute the program with 'mono

Class HelloWorld
	Shared Sub Main
		System.Console.WriteLine ("Hello world")
	End Sub
End Class
