Your error message shows that CI expects a a minimum version of for protobuf and you’re using version

The short answer is to update protobuf-net to a version greater than or equal to the required one. See here: it’s up to version Get latest on this library and it should be fine.

The reason there’s a minimum version number specified is to make sure that CI doesn’t break with out of date libs. We’d rather have compiler errors than runtime errors or data corruption issues.

Hello, everyone.

Pay attention, there's lots of version numbers below :-)

Riak: 1.4.8-0-g7545390
Hosting OS:  CentOS 6.5
IDE:  Monodevelop 4.2.3
CorrugatedIron:  1.4.2 (obtained through the Monodevelop Nuget plugin)

I've written a very simple C# console program to test CorrugatedIron -> Riak connectivity but when I try to build it I get an error message indicating that the version of protobuf-net being referenced by CorrugatedIron ( is higher than the version that was imported with  CorrugatedIron (  Has anyone else come across this problem?  Any ideas how to fix it?

Full error message:  Error CS1705: Assembly `CorrugatedIron, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=fb1ec7de601674df' references `protobuf-net, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=257b51d87d2e4d67' which has a higher version number than imported assembly `protobuf-net, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=257b51d87d2e4d67' (CS1705) (CI_Riak_test)

Sorry if this is a noob question but I'm still finding my way with a) CentOS, b) Riak, c) Monodevelop, d) C# ... so I need all the help I can get!
