monodevelop on Windows is a "native" GTK# application so it depends on
GTK# for .NET and .NET framework. It does not depends on mono, you can
use monodevelop to write your Windows application using WPF if you

If you want to install mono on Windows that you need to install package
mono-2.10.8-gtksharp-2.12.11-win32-1.exe, that, as its name suggests,
installs mono (.NET compatible free implementation) and it's GTK#. GTK#
compiled for mono are different from GTK# compiled for MS .NET
framework. If you like you can write your mono application using Visual
Studio or any another IDE you like.
