VB.NET - unable to update Project References to latest version of a DLL

Last Modified: 2016-03-29
Hi Experts,

I'm runninig VS2013 Ultimate.

I've got a VB.NET project that uses a particular DLL.

In the Project References the DLL is showing as version 1.0.2.

But the DLL file that it points to is version 1.0.3.

I have tried deleting the reference and re-establishing it.  When I click Add | Reference it shows as being version 1.0.3:

Add Reference Screen

But then reappears in the reference list as v1.0.2 again.
