VS .NET Project References

Hi all,
I have a VS.NET (2005 BETA2) solution that has five winforms projects.
Here are the details.

Project-A (Main, startup project), references Project-B (class lib project)
Project-B (Class lib project), references Project-C (Class lib project)
Project-C (Class lib project), references Project-D (Class lib project)

The problem i am having is
Project-D.dll is in the (bin) folder of Project-C but not in Project-B's bin
folder or Project-A's bin folder. I checked both in debug and release and
also in different platform builds. Also i have checked the project
dependencies and build order for each one the projects, everything seems to
be fine. Am i missing something?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if this applied in 2005, but check the "Copy Local" property in the property grid of each Reference. It should be set
to "true".

Dave,
Yes. 'Copy Local' is true.
