Visual Studio Error: The given assembly name or codebase was invalid (HRESULT: 0x80131047)

When attempting to add a reference to a project this error kept appearing.

I though it was because I had switched the project from .Net 3.0 to 3.5 but it turns out it was something else.  The problem turned out to be that the assembly path contained a comma (eg. C:\Libraries\MyLibrary{1-1-14, Customer}).  Once I moved the assembly to C:\Libraries it added correctly.

Is there a way around this without rebuilding the program; i.e a way to rename the assembly and fix the error?
I would greatly appreciate any help you'd be willing to offer.
