Hi, I found the cause of the error: IronRuby.Libraries.dll does not get
copied to the bin/debug location on build like the other dependencies (i.e.
IronRuby.dll, etc. ) despite the fact that they are all correctly listed as
references of the project. When I copy it manually everything works fine.
Any idea, why it is not copied automatically?
