This customer did not realize he was loading a Android project(he does not have an Android license, only iOS) and received the message: "Xamarin.Android for Visual Studio requires Business edition or greater". Would be helpful for him to have known which project was causing the error.

Since licensing changes this bug is no longer valid.
