I have a VB.NET server app and client app that are both using the same .dll for communication. I've built the project, gacutil'ed it to add it to the global assembly cache... I'm up to .dll version 1.2.6 right now.

When I run the client, I get an error during one of it's methods that says:
"Cannot find the assembly SMailMan, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=....."

I think I've removed all references I have to this, uninstalled old assemblies, deleted the solution file, and re-built the project. Nothing gets rid of this reference to version of the old assembly.  How could this be happening, and how can I fix it?
