hi,i'm having the same problem in multiple solutions and i asked for help in a couple of "forums" already.... here is an easy explaination about my problem.we have 3 projects:Project "A" - a web applicationproject "B" - class libraryproject "C" - class libraryProject C holds a reference to a 3rd party dll. let's say thirdparty.dll. the 3rd party dll is referenced in the C.csproj file with a relative path and private = true (copy local = true): <Reference Include="ThirdPartysNameSpace.BlaBla, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=0912345678910123, processorArchitecture=MSIL">
</Reference> Project B holds a project to project reference to Project C.Project A holds a project to project reference to Project B.when i compile project C the thirdparty.dll is copied to its bin directory. C's bin directory contains C.dll and thirdparty.dll - correct so far.however when i then compile project B the thirdparty.dll isn't copied to project B's bin directory! B's bin only contains C.dll and B.dll. why isn't project C's bin content copied to B's bin?(sure thirdparty.dll is also missing in project A's bin directory.
