Hi there,

I also have the DOS prompt issue.

I have entered "-target:winexe" in the "Options > Compiler > Additional
compiler arguments" field in MonoDevelop to no effect.
On the command line "vbnc -target:winexe Application.vb" yields the
following but the DOS prompt persists in Windows.

Visual Basic.Net Compiler version (Mono 2.4.2 - r)
Copyright (C) 2004-2008 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge. All rights reserved.
Assembly 'Application, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=null' saved successfully to '/path/to/Application.exe'.
Compilation successful
Compilation took 00:00:02.5703820

Any help greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
