The applications that have been builded for running on EV3 can not be runned on Windows or others platforms.
So You should simply build application in Visual Studio (or Xamarin Studio) and then copy ALL files (not only .exe and .dll) from the debug folder to the EV3 app folder.
If you will use Xamarin you will be able to use MonoSoftDebugger for remote debugging of applications that runned on EV3 on Windows machine.
All programs from the monobrick site should be compiled and runned successufuly on EV3 brick.
You can also take many examples from the github repository.
