References with Local Copy set to TRUE are not checked recursively

Posted on 2008-11-20

Hello, I Have a project A that has a reference to Z.dll. The reference has set the "Local Copy" property to true. When I build the project A it has inside the bin folder the Z.dll copies. Everything fine.

Then I have a project B that has a project reference to the project A. When I build the project B I have not the Z.dll copied at the bin folder. Is this the expected result? I'm missing something?

    As crazy as this sounds.... you're supposed to add the related references yourself.
    So, no... this is not a "bug" per se (althought you could send 'em a suggestion anyway).
