The problem is that C4F.LegoRcx.dll is built for the .NET Framework 2.0,
and .NET/Link is configured to use .NET 1.1. To allow .NET/Link to use .NET
2.0, edit the file <Mathematica
dir>/AddOns/NETLink/InstallableNET.exe.config. Add this line as the first
<supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
Now you will be able to load and use those RCX examples.
Future releases of .NET/Link will by default use .NET 2.0 (or 3.0) on
machines that have it installed.
You will probably need to put the auxiliary DLLs (GhostAPI.dll,
PbkComm32.dll, PbkUsbPort.dll) needed for those examples into a directory
on your Windows PATH. There doesn't appear to be much documentation for the
C4F.LegoRcx assembly, so use the NETTypeInfo function on assemblies,
classes, and objects to see the types, methods, and properties available.
