I finally figured out the true source of my DTF build errors. It wasn't a 3.5-3.8 behavior change, it was as described here:

http://lukianol.wordpress.com/2011/04/04/visual-studio-msbuild-copy-local-private/

To reproduce build a DTF project and watch it succeed. Then publish Microsoft.Deployment.WindowsInstaller to the GAC and try to rebuild. It will fail.

My suggestion is that the project templates add the Private True element the project files. This would allow newly created projects to compile when the assembly is found in the GAC.

I have a pull request for a fix just in case this gets triaged in time for 3.8 release.

Please create the pull request. If they don't take it for 3.8 it will still be queued and be first in line for 3.9.
