Could not load file or assembly 'MySql.Data, Version=5.2.2.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference

The code is the same that worked before as .net 2.0 and 'MySql.Data, Version=5.1.4.0   but upgraded app to .net 3.5 and upgraded to 'MySql.Data, Version=5.2.2.0  now get this error.  

Removed and reloaded .dll references
