[MonoDevelop] Unable to Create Solutions or open Files in Mono Dev 2.4 or 2.6 on Windows 7 x64

I am trying to develop in Unity and Mono and have been unsuccessful in
getting MonoDevelop to work correctly.

I have searched all over but have not found a solution and have been unable
to resolve this issue. Any help is appreciated. I have been unable to
develop in MonoDevelop. It throws exceptions every time I try to open a file
or create a solution. Unable to use new or previously existing solutions.

Is there anything I can do to solve this issue?

Tried clean installs of Both Unity and MonoDevelop. I am able to open them
fine in text editors and visual studio, but I want to be able to debug and
use MonoDevelop.

Windows 7 x64,
Latest Stable versions of Unity and MonoDevelop

Let me know if there is any other information, errors, or logging I would be
able to provide. I am green to Mono and Unity.

Thanks again.

Sample Exception:

The file 'F:\**.cs' could not be opened. Exception has been thrown by the
target of an invocation.

System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by
the target of an invocation. ---> System.ArgumentException: The path is not
of a legal form.
