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