Microsoft.Synchronization.Data.Server

I have an application that I built in VB2010. It work fine on my development computer but I can't install it on any other computer due to this error...

"Unable to install or run the application. The application requires that assembly Microsoft.Synchronization.Data.Server Version 2.0.0.0.0 be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first."

I've installed SyncSDK-v2.1-x86-ENU.msi which according to Microsoft, installs this assembly, but I still have the same error.

Does anyone know how I can get this assembly installed in the GAC so I can get my program installed?

Thanks,
Jim

I went into the Application Files section on the publish tab of the properties and changed the Publish Status from "Prerequisite (Auto)" to "Include" and now it works. Seems odd, I surprised that Prerequisite didn't add the files if they we needed.

But anyway, thanks for fast response to my question.
