Thanks for your response...

/I'm not the best person to answer you (don't have a Mac), but this should
be better than nothing./

I don't have a Mac either - this was a request from a customer..  In fact I
have never even used a Mac! Closest  I have come is using the windows
version of Safari to test websites...

/"1. Is it possible to port an existing winform application to OSX?" 
Yes. Although WinForms support in Mono isn't good on OSX. But then again,
maybe you'd like to help and patch it./

Any idea where to start?
/"2. If so would WebService, WebBrowser and other native Windows items cause
a problem?"
 WebService should be OK, but WebBrowser is not supported on Mac./

If WebBrowser is not supported or converted is there any way round this? 

/As for the exception you're getting, I'm not sure. I know some of the
latest Mono versions were not packaged properly for Mac (something about
GDI+ being compiled for 64-bit rather than 32-bit, or something). Maybe try
an older Mono version, or look around for solutions for this issue./

The version I have is for Windows, running on Server 2008 R2...
