I succeed to install monodevelop on open SUSE using yaST control 
center/software management

and try to run sample program created by monodevelop template (GTK# 

// created on 04/18/2006 at 19:43

using System;

using Gtk;

using GtkSharp;

namespace MyWindow


            public class CreatedWindow : Window


                        public CreatedWindow () : base ("MyWindow")





BUT WHEN click to build error message appears

Error while executing command: Build

to an instance of an object

Can somebody tell that is the problem and how to overcome it (this is in 
monodevelop 0.7)

Also I couldn't succeed to update it to newer version.
