Description PJ 2013-01-16 20:54:59 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1) Don't have a license file or account
2) Open VS without opening a project
3) Go to Tools->Options->Xamarin->iOS
4) Click [Configure]

Actual behavior:
"Please activate your Xamarin.iOS before configure your build host"

Expected behavior:

A) (best) User should just be prompted to activate

B) (easiest) Text should be updated to read

"Please activate Xamarin.iOS before configuring your build host."

MTVS 1.0.681

At the very very least, let's implement B) and move the A) solution to V2

Today we have checked this issue on following builds:

VS 2012 /2010
MTVS 1.2.103
Mono 2.10.12

When we click on configure in Xamarin->iOS setting then it prompts us to activate Trial or purchase license or log-in with xamarin account.
