Avoid Binary Compatibility Problems

To prevent losing the ability to maintain binary compatibility with compiled object code, take the first compiled build and move it into a separate directory, then tell VB to maintain compatibility with it.

Maintaining a separate version that is used solely as a compatibility master protects you.
