TypeMock.dll was isntallted to the GAC
Typemock.ArrangeActAssert.dll is not.

Is there a good reason for that?

The difference is that VS adds the Assemblys in different ways to the solution.
TypeMock.dll will be added with copy local = false
and Typemock.ArrangeActAssert.dll with copy local = true

We place TypeMock.dll, which is the core DLL, in the GAC for technical reasons. This way we can reference it in runtime using the fully qualified name.

The AAA dll doesn't need to be in the GAC, that is why the installer does not add it.
