I've look all over the various places that settings can be squirreled away in a project but haven't found where the target browser version is specified.

I need to change if from IE8 to IE9 - How do I go about doing this?

Hello George,

Actually, you don't specify the target IE version. What you specify is an IE version interops of which you use in your IE add-on. And the fact is: whatever interop version you specify, your add-on will be loaded by ALL IE versions.

If you need to use interops for another IE version, you can just replace interop files in your project with corresponding files from {Add-in Express}\Redistributables\Interop Assemblies\.
