Can anyone tell me what is required of a PC to run a released MonoGame. I mean what software the PC needs to have installed to run the games. I have some problems running my released games on other PC's than my developer machine. They simply stops responding when I try to run them.

Assuming you are using the exact same setup of VS2010/VS2012 as myself.

Ensure all art/sound/effect assets File Properties are set properly.

a. Build Action should be set to Content

b. Copy To Output Directory should be Copy if newer or Copy Always

Using VS201X's Publish will provide an easy to use installer.

a. The Setup.exe file will install .Net4.0 on the users machine if it is missing.

b. YourGame'sName.application will install the game.

User will need to install OpenAl

Thx for the reply :) It was the openAL I was missing – KarstenGL Jun 9 '13 at 16:30
I wonder if you can include OpenAL in your installer? – craftworkgames Jun 11 '13 at 4:03
