It is not a matter of whether you have .net installed or not: if you
run the sample in the mono commandline on the machine where you have
both, it will use mono and libgluezilla to run it, it won't use .net.
Does it run correctly on the mono command line on the machine where
you have both installed? On the machine where you don't have .net, did
the mono install work correctly? Go to the directory where you
installed it to and check if there is a "xulrunner" directory inside
it, and if there is a "bin/gluezilla.dll" file, too.
gluezilla is probably exiting with an error, and that's why you get
that message. Try also to run the application with the --debug flag
and see if it gives you more information.
