When adding a reference to the Analytics monitor from a project in Visual Studio, an error may occur on Windows 8:

"A reference to a higher version or incompatible assembly cannot be added to the project"

This is likely due to the file being blocked by Windows, as downloaded content is deemed unsafe for. The solution is to right-click on the unpacked monitor file, select Properties, and click Unblock.

Hi Waqas,

Thanks for letting us know. I've just added this tip to the online documentation, as the blocking-behavior can be a bit of a showstopper.
