    Hi George,

    Can you try seeing if this is the issue?

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13698094/referencing-zxing-net-library/13698737#13698737

    From the post:

    Right click on the DLL in File Explorer --> Click Properties --> Choose unblock. Then try to add a reference again. VS2012 has the absolute worse error message for when DLLs are blocked due to the fact they were downloaded from the web.

    Hi, yep that solved the problem, I discovered it myself before seeing your post by trying to add the references in VS2012 and getting this time a different message about blocked files.. I was initially using VS2013 where you don't even get a message as such, just the obscure "A reference to a higher version or incompatible assembly cannot be added to the project" warning where you have no clue why its being raised.

     

    Thanks,
