compile fails with "Specified minimum required version is greater than the current publish version. "

I have been compiling my build without problems for the last year and all of a sudden I get this error when I try to do a compile:

"Specified minimum required version is greater than the current publish version. Please specify a version less than or equal to the current publish version."

What does seem to be connected is that I am working on a maintenance branch that is different than my main line: that is when this happened.

Any ideas?

    Check the properties of your project. The version numbers are on the 'publish' tab. You should compare the publish version with the minimum version ('Updates' button).
