Stop your incessent whining!
In our reader app, i've created a number of managed libraries. I use a library within those libraries called AssemblySettings.dll in order to get the AppSettings data. Anyways, in the main app, when you add two dll's that use the same dependency, Visual Studio.Net starts whining like a dog forbidden to eat dinner.

Searching all over the vast expanse we call the Internet, I didn't find a satisfactory solution. So, I said to myself, why not just add all the projects together into one CUMULATIVE project. Then when it builds, it will see that the AssemblySettings.dll file for all the projects are the exact same and should stop its whining.

Without much further ado, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you....The Build Output.
