Hello everyone

I would like some clarity with regards to the following question:

  • What are my options for developing a Windows Targeted Desktop Application using Xamarin Studio on my Mac?

As I understand it, I should be able to develop using GTK# 2.0 Project template and distribute that to Windows, Linux, and Mac targets but that would require the user to download and install GTK# frameworks on the target machines.

  • Is the above understanding correct?
  • On a Windows target machine with the .NET framework installed, would just the GTK libraries need to be installed?
  • Is it possible to bundle GTK# with the application, so the user would not have to download and install any framework?
  • Is it possible to develop an app using WinForms on in Xamarin Studio for Mac?
  • Is it possible to develop an app using WinForms on in Xamarin Studio on Windows?

  • Are there any other options that I have overlooked?

Thanks
