cannot create a PCL project

I have the latest version of Xamarin Studio (Android) in a Win 7 machine and I do not have the option for "Portable library" when creating a new solution.
The About dialog report this:
Xamarin Studio 4.2.2 (build 2)
Xamarin.Android version 4.10.1

Any idea?

I'm using a trial

    It should be under File -> New Solution -> C# -> Portable Library

    I know it is supposed to be there. But I cannot find it.

    I used my active business install on OSX and it was there.

    The one with the error is a brand new Win 7 machine with the trial business version.

    It is of course up to date.

    Is the PCL option disabled in the trial version?

    Do you have Visual Studio installed? There is an open bug on my todo list where people seem to have problems when they don't have VS2k12 installed. It's supposed to work, but possible that something's broken.
