[MonoDevelop] Unable to find "resgen" tool

I'm getting the same error, and it persists after installing the SDK. I just
downloaded and installed the .net 3.5 SDK, restarted my comp, and still got
the resgen error. This is my first shot at MonoDev, and I'm trying to load a
VB 2008 Express solution. Is there an environment path I need to set or

The error also involves something about a powerpack:

Assembly 'Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs, Version=,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' not found. Make sure that
the assembly exists in disk. If the reference is required to build the
project you may get compilation errors.
Unable to find 'resgen' tool.
Build: 1 error, 0 warnings

Any suggestions?
