I have just built my first setup project for a .NET application. When I run the setup.exe on a target machine, ISX2009 copies ALL of the dependant assemblies for my application into the apps program folder "C:\Program Files\My App\"

For example the following are copied:

ActiveReports3.dll
System.Core.dll
System.Data.DataSetExtensions.dll


Why is ISX2009 copying the Microsoft core dll's to the targets program folder when they already exist on the machine, in the normal places.

Also How can i specify folders for ActiveReports etc.

Set the .NET scan to Properties only instead of Properties and Dependencies. InstallShield ( default setting ) of scanning dependencies is a bit oversensitive in picking up strongly named GAC assemblies that are part of the framework redist.
