This error usually occurs if the same source file is included into
2 different assemblies. The types declared in this file will be
totally different and incompatible. This is by design of .NET
and C# compiler's type resolution.

In your case, the file implementing "Amino.Common.IProjectNodeData"
is probably duplicated and included by 2 or more assemblies.
