Visual Basic dependency problems


Hi All,
I want to install vbnc to run some windows program on my Debian Jessie
After downloaded the package from packages.debian.org, the main file mono-vbnc_3.8-1_all needs libmono-microsoft-visualbasic11.0-cil_3.8-1_all, and the second file needs another file, and so on (as how dependency works).
But, when I come to the last file, it needs the previous file which I've downloaded (quite confusing)
Here is the detail :
mono-vbnc_3.8-1_all needs libmono-microsoft-visualbasic11.0-cil_3.8-1_all
libmono-microsoft-visualbasic11.0-cil_3.8-1_all needs libmono-microsoft-visualbasic10.0-cil_3.8-1_all
libmono-microsoft-visualbasic10.0-cil_3.8-1_all needs libmono-corlib4.5-cil_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all
libmono-corlib4.5-cil_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all needs mono-runtime_3.2.8+dfsg-10_i386
mono-runtime_3.2.8+dfsg-10_i386 needs mono-runtime-sgen_3.2.8+dfsg-10_i386
mono-runtime-sgen_3.2.8+dfsg-10_i386 needs mono-runtime-common_3.2.8+dfsg-10_i386
mono-runtime-common_3.2.8+dfsg-10_i386 needs mono-gac_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all
mono-gac_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all needs mono-4.0-gac_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all
mono-4.0-gac_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all needs libmono-corlib4.5-cil_3.2.8+dfsg-10_all

Look that like it goes to tail, then back to head again.

you do not need to download the packages, but use apt to install them. That should solve dependency issues automatically.
if you have downloaded those files you may need to install them "in one", not one by one. dpkg -i <list all of those packages>

mono is the linux version of C# and dot net

for the Microsofts odd version of "BASIC" they called Visual basic ( not to be confused with the real "BASIC" language )

you might want to use a microsoft operating system

you might be able to use the mono-vbnc
BUT use apt to install it
DO NOT !!!! just download random deb files and manually install them

-- USE apt ( or sysnaptic )

The program was made by my programmer using .exe extention, we usually work it in windows and now I try to use Debian 8.8 (Jessie).
I've installed Wine and able to open some windows program, but some of them not. I read a post in a website (forgot to note it) that we will need to install visualbasic too to be able to run windows program properly.

In this case, what should I do with synaptic to get that program.
In my old Debian 7.2, we have wine and microsoft.net framework 1.

Hi, All
I've succesfully added debian package repositories to my synaptic, it's easier to download and install packages now.
Finally get what I need.
Thanks All
