OSMinVersion must have value 6.2.1 or higher in Windows Store Application

I was busy working with other stuff and after long time today I resumed my working with Windows 8 development. I opened an old project and directly press F5 to run the application on local machine.

While I tried to run the application, I encountered with following run time error. Error message was as following,

In the app manifest, the value of element OSMinVersion(6.2.0) must have a value of ‘6.2.1’ or higher



Although I found solution of this bug very easy, I got puzzled with this exception. You can solve this problem

By making sure you have REBUILD the project before running it

Make sure you are cleaning and rebuilding the project to avoid this run time error. I hope you find this post useful. Thanks for reading.
