I was able to solve my problem by defining target="@executable_path/libfoo.dylib". this has worked great.
I have a new issue now. I need to embed a dll into my redistributable application. Some code is trying to load this dll using Assembly.LoadWithPartialName() at runtime. It seems that embedding this dll using the with-assembly sub-tag of my mkbundle task is not sufficient for it to be found by LoadWithPartialName(). I _can_ however distribute this dll outside of the app bundle, and run the app from the command line with the MONO_PATH environment pointed to the dll's path. My question is: how can I include or embed this dll in the app bundle in a way that it can be loaded at runtime? --Anthony On Tue, Feb 16, 2010 at 1:40 PM, Duane Wandless <du...@wandless.net> wrote: > I embed my app so your solution will most likely be different.
