I'm trying to use MonoDevelop to compile Visual Basic in Ubuntu. I've installed MonoDevelop 4.2.2 as instructed in this thread from "ppa:ermshiperete/monodevelop". However I cannot build the sample Visual Basic project. With the following error:
/opt/monodevelop/lib/mono/4.5/Microsoft.VisualBasic.targets: Error: Error executing task Vbc: Argument cannot be null.
Parameter name: pathToTool (Test)
I'm clearly missing some setup to build VB projects, any ideas how I can get them working?
- Reading the mentioned VB targets file doesn't show obviously where I should define a pathToTool parameter and I'm not exactly sure the Visual Basic tools it's referring to are even installed (though I don't know where to look.)
- Using a VM with Visual Studio. This works but it's annoying.
- Using a better programming language; colleges choice.
