Stopping refrences from copying over during a debug session.

P: n/a
We debug a VB.Net App that uses compact framework to a DAP Windows CE.Net

When I debug I would like to only have the EXE copied down. Right now it
copies any referrences as well and checks the .NET CF version.

The first message I receive is:
Files in the package '' are more recent on the
device than on the development computer. Consider upgrading to the latest
version. Files affected are:

This is not true as the .cab file on my dev box is version 1.0 SP3 and it is
the same version installed on the device. I realize that this is not a
problem, I would just like to stop it from checking.

Then it copys over all the Dll's of the referrences that we have. We use a
few 3rd party dlls

Copying files from 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\v1.0.5000\Windows CE\' to '\Program Files\TI_VRT_CE'
Copying Xceed.Compression.Formats.dll
Copying Xceed.Zip.dll
Copying nsoftware.IPWorksZipCF.dll

I know that if the Dlls are not there then I would have referrence problems,
but they are static and stay on the device. It takes 30 seconds to start the
debug session accross the network and I would just like to stop them from
copying all the time. Anyone have any ideas ?
