We are implementing an application via Base Commands in ArcMap.  Our ultimate goal is to have our assembly run in 10.0 and 10.1 systems without modification.

The project compiles fine in both a 10.0 and a 10.1 environment, but unfortunately, when we build the project in a 10.1 environment (and Visual Studio 2010), with all Esri assemblies set to ???Specific Version = False??? in the compiler, we get an error on registration in a 10.0 system stating that ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Local, version could not be found.

Why would 10.1 assemblies be required when the program has been compiled with SpecificVersion=False?

Is it possible to accomplish our goal?
