We have found the following problem with Xamarin.Android: 

Here is the system information: 
OS: Windows 8.1 x64
Xamarin Android Player: v0.6.1
Image: Nexus 5 (Lollipop) API22 5.1.0

According to the instruction to install Google Play Service in the following web site, we have tried to install Google Apps and Google Play Services the Xamarin Android Player: 

1. Download the package from the internet. There are many sources for this, one possible source is the CyanogenMod web site. 
2. Start up the Android Player and unlock it.
3. Drag and drop the zip file that you downloaded onto the Android Player.
4. Restart the Android Player.

When the downloaded zip file is tried to drag and drop on Xamarin Android Player, it is failed with ".zip file cannot be installed!" error message. 
FYR, I have attached the screen shot. Please find it. 

Please let us know the workaround how to avoid the error message. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank you for your help.
