Bundler missing DLLs

When I run the bundler it misses some DLLs the my application needs. The DLLs are copied to the output directory and I can manually copy them into the Bundle but it's a bit annoying. Any thoughts on why this is would be great!

    That can happen if there's no reference to the assemblies, e.g. if you only load them dynamically via Assembly.Load*. In this case the linker, inside mmp, won't see the assemblies as used and will not copy them to reduce the application size.

    If the assemblies are referenced, by your main project (.exe) or another assembly referenced by your main project, then it should be copied into the output. If that's the case it would be helpful to open a bug report and attach the full build log (with -v -v -v added as extra parameters to mmp so we have the maximum verbosity to see what went wrong).

    It's reference directly. I'll get a bug report filed. Thanks (again)
