Custom managed action creates files in SourceBaseDir

I have a custom managed action that works (yeah!), but it is creating 2 additional files in the Project.SourceBaseDir and in the install directory:
  • CustomAction.config
  • MyExternalDll.CA.dll
Is it normal?

Yes it is. These are the temp files you most likely decided to keep with:
Compiler.PreserveTempFiles = true;
The files themselves are the native dll and the config file implementing your custom actions
