Description John Miller [MSFT] 2016-02-12 19:08:07 UTC
**Overview:**

   It would be helpful if the Help -> About Visual Studio information for Xamarin tooling included the license level like Xamarin Studio does. 

**Actual Results:**

The current output is like this: 

Xamarin 4.0.0.1717 (1390b70)
Visual Studio extension to enable development for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android.

Xamarin.Android 6.0.0.35 (d300845)
Visual Studio plugin to enable development for Xamarin.Android.

Xamarin.iOS 9.3.99.33 (ea30b32)
Visual Studio extension to enable development for Xamarin.iOS.

**Expected Results:**

Xamarin Studio shows the product version number, followed by (License Edition)

e.g.
=== Xamarin.iOS ===

Version: 9.7.0.170 (Enterprise Edition)

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XVS 4.0

Updating importance and setting Target Milestone.
Comment 2 Jose Gallardo 2016-11-22 16:18:24 UTC
It turns out that we're currently following the Visual Studio licensing level, which is already in that dialog.
Hence, it doesn't make sense anymore to show a separate license level.

Marking the bug as resolved.
