Give user feedback if someone is trying to open up a private AGOL layer in Desktop

    I have an ArcGIS Online Feature Layer that I tried to open in ArcGIS for Desktop...  ArcGIS Desktop started but then nothing happened.  I noticed that the particular feature layer is only shared in my organization, and I was not signed into my organization yet in ArcGIS Desktop.  After signing in everything worked fine.

    If a user tries to load a private AGOL layer please give some sort of feedback if they are not signed in, or signed in but is not permitted to view the data.

    Thank You
