AssemblyVersionCompatibility defines the compatibility of an assembly with other versions of the same assembly, indicating if it cannot execute side-by-side with other versions (for example, due to conflicts over a device driver).

If no compatibility is specified, an assembly is side-by-side compatible in all scopes.

An assembly cannot be more specific with regard to exactly which previous versions it is not side-by-side compatible with. Therefore, if the AssemblyVersionCompatibility is specified, it means the assembly is non side-by-side with all know versions. If not specified, it means it is side-by-side with all known versions.
