MessagingToolkit.Core dependent on System.Windows.Forms?
I was trying to run MessagingToolkit on Mono 3.2.8 on Debian Linux for an embedded application.
I found that it was failing, due to a dependency on System.Windows.Forms:
Mono: The following assembly referenced from /root/smstest/MessagingToolkit.Core.dll could not be loaded:
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (assemblyref_index=3)
Public Key: b77a5c561934e089
Is this dependency on System.Windows.Forms actually required for MessagingToolkit.Core? In an embedded application it's not ideal to have such a dependency.
As a side note, Mono does have an implementation of System.Windows.Forms which I installed out of desperation. It got me past the above error, but still failed with the following: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for System.Windows.Forms.XplatUI, but I think this is unrelated to MessagingToolkit.
It'd really be good to have your Core library free from this dependency. Would this be feasible?
Thanks and regards,
You can get this library under the "Binaries" folder. There is a folder called "additional" that you can see the library.
Let me know if it does not work for you.
