Hi,
Is there a way to package a .NET assembly and then have it copied over to the projects output directory (bin\release is the default but it can be anything) but not have it added as part of the projects reference ?

Currently if I add the assembly to the lib folder it does get copied to the project output folder upon but that because it also gets added to the project reference. I don't want the project to reference it.

thanks.
