It sounds like you may have a problem in the program itself.

To facilitate analysis of the issue, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

I can guess why. It's because you didn't save your written code.

When you're done writing Program.cs save it. Press (Ctrl+s). Make sure there is no red circle next to Program.cs title. Red Circle

After you do that compile it. mcs Program.cs

And run the .exe file. mono Program.exe
