Hi. I'm new to programming and I started on VB.NET first. If my VB.NET app was able to compile and run successfully on Xamarin, does that mean that it would work on Mac and Linux also? Thanks in advanced.
No guaranteed, but possibly. It depends on what referenced assemblies you're using and whether they're available and work on the target platform.
Thanks for the quick answer! I'll have to see how it goes since it is a WinForms app. Referenced assemblies include PresentationCore, PresentationFramework, System.Drawing, System.Windows.Forms, System.Xml, and WindowsBase
Use MOMA to check compatibility of your assemblies DLLs and exe
BTW presentationframework and presentationcore and windowsbase smell a lot like wpf and this is no-no with mono
Well, I used the converter for the .exe file and it checked out all good. Those .dlls that I listed above just came with it when I first started the project. I probably have to remove them since they are unused.
