Using DLL's on client machine

My project consists of several DLL's. Among other I have xDLL.dll which has a reference to xObjects.dll. When compiling the project, xDll.dll and all dependensies are copying to bin folder of the project. It is known that on every machine (user machine) that this application will be used, all those files are located in c:\\Program Files\X\x.Objects.dll

My question: how can I use files located on users machines instead of those which are copying while compiling?

I've tried:

Copy Local = false for xObjects.dll

And have created the file:
<?xml version ="1.0"?>
        <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
                        <assemblyIdentity name="xObjects" culture="" publicKeyToken=""/>
                        <codeBase version="" href="file:///C:/Program Files/X/xObjects.dll"/>


Please help!
