Visual Studio Release project confusion - Experts HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a difficult task at hand. I was given the release or .exe file for a program. I then was asked to update the code, however, there are about 4 versions of the solution file sitting out on the server and all have different modified dates, none matching the one in the one they are currently running!

Is there a way to tell which one of these project solution files are the one used to generate the release files?

Visual Studio .NET - not even sure which version 2012 or 2010.

I would try to recompile the 4 versions found on the server to compare against the one that is deployed. Other then that, the compiled file itself does not contain metadata of the source project.
