Thanks for reporting this issue. You are right that it is only an issue with unmanaged projects. This is by design as Copy Local was designed only to work with assemblies and managed components. It does not work with unmanaged binaries. This is the same way it worked in VS2008 as well. Unfortunately we will not be able to fix this behavior for VS2010. To workaround the issue please use custom build steps to copy the binaries to the desired location.

Hello, thanks for forwarding the issue to the VS group. Have they triaged the bug?

I hear this is not a problem for managed .vcxproj files. Unfortunately I would like it to work with unmanaged .vcxproj files. For this latter scenario will they issue a patch or work around?
