You mean Visual Studio 2005 I assume, however Visual Studio 2008 will 
also work and you don't *need* the sources to IronPython to embed or

Or windows Vista, or server 2008, or any of the platforms that Mono runs on.

Really? Can you file a bug report on Codeplex that demonstrates the problem?

On the other hand use the .NET bytes type with IronPython is fine.
