I occasionally use Manager Accounting software (in Peppermint 7/8 64bit) from here:
https://www.manager.io/desktop/download/

But recently in Peppermint 7/8 64bit it refused to start, when I attempted to run it from the command line with
Code: [Select]
/opt/manager-accounting/manager-accounting
I got a load of "Unhandled Exception at Eto.Forms.MessageBox.Show" messages.

The fix is to update the version of all your mono libs.

You can do this in Peppermint 7/8 64bit by running the following commands to update mono directly from the mono-project repos:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
then
Code: [Select]
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/ubuntu xenial main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official.list
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Manager should now start.

I wouldn't do this unless you're having problems with any mono apps .. I just put this here to document the issue if it comes up.
