Manual installation of vb.net app...

P: n/a
sam

I'd like to place a simple application, written with vb.net 2005, onto a
linux server. The app is them "run" from a windows xp machine by
clicking on the icon for the app (via samba). In the past (vb 2003) the
steps for this were simple:

1-make sure that the app was compiled with references all set to "local
copy".
2-compile the app.
3-copy everything in the "release" (app and dlls) folder to the linux
server location.

This ran fine as long as security was set for Intranet to wide
open--this is not a problem as I am on a closed network.

However, apps compiled with vb2005 do not seem to work using this
method--I'm getting the error ""MyApp has encountered a problem and
needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvienence" and an unhandled
exception of "System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException" in the debugger.

Is there another manner of being able to place my app on a remote
(non-windows) server that will allow it to be accessible from a windows
box? Local installation on the windows boxes is not an option.
