Description Ben Beckley 2015-05-06 17:09:57 UTC
When logged out of your Xamarin account, there is a message when opening a file that says a Xamarin Business or Xamarin Enterprise subscription is needed to proceed. Now that there is Starter support, the message will need to be updated accordingly. This was with the latest stable version 3.11.445 / 5061f92

Reproduction Steps:
1) Start VS
2) Log out of Xamarin account if logged in
3) Make a new Android blank app
4) Open the Main.axml file
5) Observe the message stating that you need a Business or Enterprise subscription

You _do_ need business or enterprise to use the designers, so that message is absolutely correct.
