Packaging third party Localized assemblies in MSI

I'm using DevExpress within my COM add-in.
I've dowloaded French localized assemblies and there are located in a subfolder (fr) of the primary output.
In debug, it works fine and I can see translated ressources.

I have created an msi setup project. In 'File System On Target', I've added 'fr' subfolder to Application Folder. Then I added Localized resources from 'MyProject'. But I guess it tries to find the files in the primary output directory, and not in subfolder 'fr'. So they are not packaged...

Could advise on how to package such localized assemblies located in subfolders?

Best regards,

Hello Sébastien,

Try to add those files to your setup project: let them deploy right to the installation folder, not to a subfolder of the installation folder.
