SQL Server 2012 Error: No Backupset Selected To Be Restored

A few days ago, I tried to restore a database (a routine activity for me) from production environment to my laptop. To my surprise (or more like I got annoyed), I got this wonderful message:

No backup selected to be restored

No backup selected to be restored

I just couldn’t believe my eyes, because I haven’t seen such an error before. After a careful google, the reason was very simple: I tried to restore an SQL 2008 backup to SQL 2012 instance. Duh!
