Many duplicate DLLs in Visual Studio reference assembly form

Several of the RO dlls are shown twice in the VS assembly form

When hovering I notice the path differs
RemObjects SDK for .NET
DataAbstract for .NET

If it is important to pick one or the other please give the assemblies different names
If not, can the duplicate be removed?


I think this is happening because Data Abstract builds on Remoting SDK, and the Remoting SDK .dlls are also deployed in the Data Abstract’s Bin folder(s), and thus found by Visual Studio there. It should not matter which one you pick, as they are identical.

I’ll log an issue to see if we can address this though, as I agree it’s a bit confusing.
