Simple help required with portable class libraries

I am interested in the PCL functionality but really seem to be missing something simple - my android java background might explain it though.
Using the MvvmCross samples but keep running into the same error when trying to reference the PCL project within an existing android app.
The error is 'Unable to add a reference to project ConX.Core. The current project does not support references to Portable Library projects'.
Followed all the instructions regarding PCL/MvvmCross installation - and the sample code works perfectly by allowing me to add and remove references to core PCL code at will.

    Does your PCL target the correct profile? I.e. did you tick the boxes for VSMonoTouch and MonoForAndroid?

    I missed the post on the mvvmcross website that states xml is seemingly case sensitive?
    So I changed xml to match case in other profiles.

    Option now show up in Framework Selection and I can reference project.
    Thanks for the help
