Hi,

i wan't to purchase touch and android, but it's hard learning a new environment with documentation or help. I can't always go online. 

MonoDevelop version 4.0.3.7

I am also using Xcode version 4.4.1 and eclipse 'Juno' for Android development. I'd prefer to do both developments in Mono as i've had good experiences with MonoDevelop und Linux.

Hi XamarinTeam,

after waiting a week without response i decdide to try and find out whats happening on my own. I really want to use MonoTouch and Android despite being quite disappointed not get a response here.

- First i fixed the script on line 43 by adding double quotes around the env var that isn't set.
- Then i ran the merge which worked.

Next problem was that monodoc wasn't starting...  So i reinstalled mon SDK from the monodevelop website and the installed the copy of monodevelop from that site as well.

Now everything works the way i expected it to.


regards

M.Laun
