Oleg,

Something I noticed:
Project.SourceBaseDir is apparently required if you have a ManagedAction defined in an external assembly (otherwise you get a compile error).

As a result of defining Project.SourceBaseDir, the Project.OutDir uses the SourceBaseDir for the wxs file (unlike the MSI file which gets created in the current directory).

Just wanted to mention this...

I cannot reproduce the problem. <Wix# Samples>\DTF (ManagedCA)\Different Scenarios\ExternalAssembly sample works from both command prompt and VS. Moving dependencies to the different location is also handled.

Can you please provide a HelloWorld sample for the problem described?
