RE: Error

Correcting, the command "mono /PathToExecutableFile/SoftwareIdeasModeler.exe".

RE: RE: Error

The newer versions of Software Ideas Modeler are not compatible with Mono due to higher complexity of software. More work is needed to make the software compatible with Mono. Unfortunately, there is no reasonable estimation how long it may take.

Running on Linux

Hi I'm evaluating the Software Ideas Modeler on multiple platforms for our company. On Linux (centos and Ubuntu) when I try to run the exe file, I get a popup with the following error:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement. Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral ...." or one of its dependencies File name: 'System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement. Version=4.0.0. Culture=neutral. ...." at SoftwareIdeasModeler.Program.LoadSettings....."

RE: Install mono package - libmono-winforms2.0-cil

Hello,

The main Mono package now includes the required components. The latest version of Software Ideas Modeler compatible with Mono is available for download at: https://www.softwareideas.net/Download/3550/software-ideas-modeler-13-51-32-bit-portable-

For guidance on installing the Mono framework, please refer to this tutorial: https://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/supported-platforms/macos/

Unfortunately, newer versions of Software Ideas Modeler, starting from version 14.00, are not supported by Mono. This is because they utilize a more recent version of the application framework (.NET).
