A reference to a higher version or incompatible assembly cannot be added to this project

Screenshot (16)

 

This was a horrible unhelpful message when I tried to reference a DLL to a Windows Phone 8 project, that I had downloaded off the internet. The solution is simple, find the DLL in windows explorer, right click on it, and select “unblock”. 

The same error occurred in a Windows Phone 7 project in VS 2010, but the error message was much more helpful, Great to see Microsoft going backwards.
