I realize that this might not be the best place for this but I've come up empty elsewhere.

My free copy of Visual C# Studio expired and I can't figure out how to use MSBuild or Mono to compile the new source releases under Windows.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?  I'm not very familiar with way .Net does things and it seems very different from gcc.

You should either stick to the releases, or just grab Visual C# Express, which is free, from MS.

I'll check when I get home from work but, as far as I can recall, I was using the MS Visual C# Express, and it is now coming up with expired messages (which I thought was odd).

MS has both trial (90-day) and express (unlimited time, limited features). I always found it rather odd to make people download a few gigabytes of data only to realize it's the wrong version and make them download the other.

Even the express expires I believe, but all you have to do is register it to get the unlimited license.
