1. Open Xamarin Visual Studio 
2. Create an Android app
3. Right - click on the project name and  select Archive
4. Observed that the archiving fails

Actual Result - Archiving Fails and the Error List section does not showup anything

Expected Result - It should archive properly and if it fails the Error List should showup the failed logs

I am able to reproduce this in a default 'Debug' mode as expected. If you look to the bottom of the 'Archive Manager' tab however, the errors are shown:

> Errors:
>   Shared Mono Runtime is enabled for 'App7'.
Maybe this could be improved by attempting to disable the 'Archive' button under certain circumstances? Or by also propagating the Errors to Error List Pad if possible? I don't think the UX is necessarily bad here though, that tab does inform the user what is wrong and how to fix it.

Hi Jacky,

The "errors section" term in the message refers to the Errors section within the tab, which has the corresponding info.
