I recently built an ASP.NET application using Microsoft Visual Studio 2017. For some reason I now see dlls from the 3rd-party vendor (DevExpress) appearing in the bin folder. In the past the references to the dlls was made from the install location of the dlls (as indicated in the registry).
a. What setting did I modify to cause this behavior?
b. Is this the best practice?
I would much rather continuing with this practice. I need to set the properties in the rest of my projects.
