Problem WIth VB Application Running through Mono On Ubuntu 9.04

I have an application that I am trying to get running on Ubuntu.
I have installed the latest version of Mono and MonoDevelop. I can open the project in MonoDevelop on Ubuntu but when I go to build the solution I get the following error:

"Unexpected error: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. (VBNC99999)"

When I double click on the error I get the following Error Message:

"File not found: home/peter/...myApp.../<MyGenerator>"

I can't for the life of me find any file called <MyGenerator>.
I have tried running the same solution in Windows using Mono Console and it runs but crashes after a few seconds.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I have considered rewritting the application in C# as I believe this is better supported in Mono. Is this correct or will I have similar problems?

In regard to the application, I am using controls such as:
DataGridViews,
Labels,
ComboBoxes,
PictureBoxes,
Timers,
Buttons, and other standard type controls.

The only non standard things I am doing are:
Overriding wndproc to handle custom mouse up/down events,
Adding custom controls to the DataGridView such as adding Pictureboxes to get animated
gifs.

Aparts from that everything else is pretty much standard.
I am using .net 2.0 also.

Just thinking about it a second... I'd recommend that you ditch the "Overriding wndproc" idea to see if it compiles and runs
