Default Duplicated assemblies in setup project


I have a VS solution with 3 projects (one is the setup project). One of the assemblies is referenced in the 2 other projects.
When I add the projects output to the setup project, this assembly is being duplicated, since both of the projects are being deployed to the same application folder. I excluded one of the duplicated copies of the assembly on the properties of the assembly, but once I reopen VS, this property is ignored and I have to set it again.

Within the references of the projects, the assembly is set to "Copy Local = True" only in the main project.

Any ideas on how to prevent this duplication


p.s. I work on WIN2K SP4, VS 2003 (7.1.3088)

Assemblies are by default private in nature.
Whenever we use an assembley in any project actully a local copy of that very assembly is created. That's why one copy each for different project are created.
