CopyLocal will add the file to the working directory (bin\debug), and it will use the file from it.
It is useful when you are providing clickonce setup to your client, it will include all the file with CopyLocal = true to the clickonce release folder.

Not necessary  to set this property for normal setup as you can also include required files in to the setup.
