Even though we've placed this component inside a
DirectoryRef element, that references the
MyProgramDir directory, it won't really be copied there since we're installing it to the GAC. Another approach is to create a dummy folder called
GAC that's used solely for this purpose. In that case, you wouldn't give that
Name attribute, which would prevent it from truly being created.

Is DirectoryRef really needed? Can the component be on its own with Assembly=".net" attribute?
