Shows Components lacking Windows icon (except for 1)

When adding Components to a project by right-clicking the "Components" folder in a Xamarin project and selecting "Get More Components...", most of the available components only show Android and Apple icons.

In my case, I will eventually have a Windows project, too.

Maybe the Windows icon doesn't show because I'm not running Windows 8 and thus cannot have a Windows project yet?

Yet if that is the case, why does *1* of the components indeed have a Windows icon, namely "Amazon S3"?

It seems that if just *one* of these components were to sport the Windows icon, it would be the "Azure Mobiles Services" component...no?

I'm attaching a scream shot just in case you don't grok the above verbiage.

BTW, I don't know what version this is, really (although it says "Insider Preview"). It must be the latest public version, as I just downloaded it a couple of days ago.

I can reproduce the reported behavior.Components do not show a Windows icon like "Azure Mobiles Services" component . 

screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/7UUi3HiSKYC0

I’ll need confirmation from the developer if this is a bug. Leaving as NEW for now.”

I was not able to reproduce this problem.  Are you still seeing the problem?  Can you provide more info?

What type of project are you trying to add a component to?

As of the writing of this comment there are only 11 of 200 components that have Windows support.  


Please re-open the bug with more info if you are still experiencing the problem.
