I installed Mono for Android using the admin account. I then use a non admin account for development. The various soft emulators show up if I'm logged in as admin, but missing if I log in as non admin. The Nexus 7 shows up in either case.
MonoDevelop shows the available configured Android emulators. Android emulators are configured per user, and the Mono for Android unified installer only creates emulator configurations for the current user, not all users, however you can get to the Android emulator manager from a button in "Project->Manage Devices..." and create more.
Alternatively you could copy them from the .android in the Admin user's profile.
I had copied from Admin account .android into non-admin account several weeks ago. Seems recent Android update broke my copy. Recopied and it works great. Thanks.
I guess arguably the installer could copy them into some system-wide location and MD could offer to "install" them if they weren't installed for the local user, so I'll leave the bug open.
Closing this since we have work items planned to address this.
