I want to put the thrid-party vendor's dll into GAC.

I created a setup project and added special folder "GAC" and added assemblies to this folder. I am not at the moment added any of my app dlls.

Now when I run the .msi project, it prompts for folder path as C:\Program files\MyCompany\AppFolder. My question is when I have only GAC files and do not have app deployment files, why does it create folder under Program Files? Is there any way I can get rid of this?
