When a K2 project is deployed using the deployment package, references included in the project are not referenced correctly or not copied in with the deployed package.

Error Scenario

A number of DLLs (Web assemblies) are added as project references (with copy local selected) in the K2 project. When the project is deployed they do not appear in the deployment folder when a deployment package is created. As a result the references are not copied to the server during the deploy and are then not available for the process referencing them.
