You can try 2 things which helped me sometimes.

1.) Delete the bin and obj directories of oyur projects and then rebuild all.(Ensure that your build configuration manager has all project marked to build)

2.) Add and Remove the references you need for your projects. If you updated the files with newer
     version with filecopy it can ends in this type of error.

Do you sign & strongname you project?
If you use ClickOnce deployment try to deactivate the security settings.

This happens when two projects references different version of the same assembly and the solution could be to upgrade the packages.

Also follow @melmers suggestion of delete the bin and obj folders and then Rebuild All

Best regards

Another option is that the signed assembly is located in the GAC and there's a local copy that's interfering with the signged version.

1) Start by removing any local copies of the DLL, if the app builds and runs ok then you've just proven this to be the problem.

if problem persists, then a more thorough clean up is required.

My guess is that you're not working with strongly named assemblies. I've had this error when two projects reference slightly different versions of the same assembly and a more dependent project references these projects. The resolution in my case was to remove the key and version information from the assembly name in the .csproj files (it didn't matter anyway), and then do a clean build.
