Problems running nant on OS X

Filed under: .NET,Apple & Mac OS X,Development — Jannis at 6:23 pm on Saturday, November 14, 2009

In oder to compile Monobjc I had to use nant.
Though I had installed all mono packages I got the following error:


Failed to initialize the ‘Mono 3.5 Profile’ (mono-3.5) target framework.

Function call failed.
Expression: ${not pkg-config::exists(‘mono’)}

‘pkg-config’ failed to start.

I could fix it by adding the path of ‘pkg-config’ to the PATH viariable.
In order to to this add the following line to your .bashrc:
export PATH=$PATH:/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Commands/

Code Checker ClockSharp

ClockSharp is a configurable code checker for the C# programming language (editions 1.1 to 2.0). It is possible to let ClockSharp check your C# code according to the widely used Philips C# coding standard or configure it to your own needs. ClockSharp checks more than 50 programming rules. It can be executed as a command-line tool, but it is also integrated into Visual Studio.NET (2003, 2005: versions 7.0, 7.1 and 8.0).

Ayman Shoukry collected a number of usefull links to the MSDN website depending on the deployment method. Go to Ayman’s WebLog

Article on Code Project:



Private Assembly install under app directory.

The VC Libs files can be installed under the app directory as a private assembly. The files required for the private assembly are under <VS install path>\vc\redist. Copy the required sub directories to the app directory.

Pros : App does not have a setup, xcopy deploy, Non admin install, Select the assemblies that the app uses, run from share

Cons : Not suitable when a product installs multiple binaries and these are installed in various directories (assembly has to be duplicated under each directory)


(Quelle: Ayman Shoukry’s WebLog)


Typische Fehlermeldungen, die auftreten wenn die C++ runtime libraries (CRT DLLs) nicht gefunden werden sind folgende:

  • “The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem”.
  • “Diese Anwendung konnte nicht gestartet werden, weil die Anwendungskonfiguration nicht korrekt ist. Zur Problembehebung sollten Sie die Anwendung neu installieren.”

Wenn das Manifest nicht gefunden wird, wird der Fehler R6034 verursacht:

  • “R6034 – attempt to load C runtime library without using manifest.”
