Issues building WiX installer, missing libraries (dlls) - Brain Dump 3

By default Visual Studio will not copy libraries that are installed in the GAC to the output folders, which means that the WiX project that looks for those libraries will fail to build as the libraries will not be there.

I'm not sure if there is a way to override this behaviour in Visual Studio (Copy Always does not seem to make a difference), so ... just remove the libraries from the GAC.
