Description Daniel Cazzulino 2015-09-25 17:40:05 UTC
Since the log files may be big (or a lot), it may take some time for them to download to Windows. This wasn't a problem previously since we didn't package the Mac logs from VS. 

Now, however, this command is running from the UI thread, and right after asking for the destination path, it should go off to the background while the zip completes, and ultimately the explorer window with the zipped file shows up, freeing the user to keep working in the meantime.

Alternatively, we could leverage the VS built-in dialog for long-running operations (i.e. solution load, MEF load, debug start, etc.) and trigger it only if the zipping is taking longer than some amount of time (like 5''?) allowing the user to either close the progress dialog (status bar will continue to update on progress) or wait until it finishes.
