We wrote some COM dotnet dlls to enhance a legacy desktop app that we aren't
ready to rewrite as managed code. My direction is to install the dlls in the
same directory as is used by the legacy app.  MSBuild seems to have it's own
idea of where that should be, and I haven't had any luck changing the
default.  I'm building from the 2005 IDE rather than command line.  This
ought to be dead simple, so I assume that I'm looking for the wrong keywords.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

John
