Xamarin.Mobile error trying to add reference to WinPhone project...

I have a Xamarin.Forms project with Android, iOS, and WinPhone projects. I downloaded Xamarin.Mobile from the Component Store. Added it to Android project, added it to iOS project...when I try to add the reference to the WinPhone project, I get an error that reads:

"A reference to a higher version or incompatible assembly cannot be added to the project."

No further information is given...any ideas? (I am trying to add the Xamarin.Mobile.dll found in the lib\wp8 directory.)

    Thanks, Dylan. That saved me. I would've never thought that the internet bit would be the problem.

    Any idea why the WinPhone project isn't just in the list of projects when I add the Xamarin.Mobile NuGet package to my solution or why it doesn't come up when I do a search for the Xamarin.Mobile NuGet package to the WinPhone project directly? It seems like an oversight.
