Hi Aaron,

If the .NET CorDebugger gives you problems, then yes, it's suggested to use
the Mono Soft Debugger on Windows. To use this, you need to install Mono
and select the Mono runtime as your app's target runtime instead of
Microsoft's .NET.

I would recommend using the latest Mono 2.10.x release unless you need
async/await, in which case I'd suggest using the latest 3.0.x release.

Hope that helps,
