Let's face it HS3 was designed for Windows and if not for the Mono emulator (Yes emulator, Mono is a background service that takes a windows program and makes it work under Linux..) or some other emulator (WINE comes to mind.) it wouldn't work on Linux or Mac OS !! What I don't understand is why MONO ?? Why not just make a Windows VM under Linux or MOS {MAC OS} ?? Emulator or VM still a "FIX" not raw code !! OK HS3 is old code that clearly was not designed for cross platform integration ! For me I don't care what they write the HS4 code in as long as it has EASY to port [Port not Emulate !!] it to other OS(s).

              Hey thanks for reaching out concord
              I sorted it out this morning Monday 21st I was missing some dependencies...

              I had installed mono-Vbnc only at that point in time (so many forum threads to read)

              Then looked over the install guide and realize I was missing these... now it looks like it starts fine.. need to put

              apt-get install libmono-system-web4.0.cil
              apt-get install libmono-system-design4.0.cil
              apt-get install libmono-system-web-extensions4.0-cil
              apt-get install libmono-system-runtime-caching4.0-cil
              apt-get install flite

              when I get home I’ll try to get it registered locally with my license.. I’ll reach out if any issues

              does all look normal from what you see?

              • You really need to follow these updated install instructions as most of those instructions you are following from the original post are obsolete. Just adjust to install for Raspbian instead of Ubuntu

                Might be worthwhile starting a new post if you hit problems as your post got a little lost here hence the
