I'm still a newbie, but I wrote a program in Visual Studio Express 2012 on Windows with references to an API through a .dll and .NET framework 4.0. If I try it on Ubuntu, I get messages like "Could Not Load File Or Assembly". Is there a way to run this on Ubuntu? If so, how do I get it to work?
Ok I figured it out. You can't simply compile your .net code under Windows and then expect it to run under linux like this: mono myprog.exe
You have to compile it under Linux first - so first download the vb compiler apt-get install mono-vbnc
then copy your source code over and compile like this vbnc myprog.vb
then run like this: mono myprog.exe
Hope this helps someone!
Yes you can do that simply installing mono on your ubuntu as follows
sudo apt-get install mono-complete
After installation of mono
