I'm using the new Nuget package ( and when I publish my project (MVC/API template) from Visual Studio the x86 and x64 folders aren't copied to publish destination.

I'm looking into this; however, if the "Publish" functionality in Visual Studio
does not take into account per-solution NuGet packages, this might be difficult
to fix.

This issue also appears when creating a Post-build script to xcopy $(TargetDir)* to another folder.   

The x86 and x64 folders and interop dlls do not appear to exist before the post-build event script runs.

xcopy "$(TargetDir)*.*" "$(SolutionDir)\InstallBuild" /YES

If you create a post-build script that fails, you can see that the x86 and x64 folders do not even get created in $(TargetDir)

xcopy "$(TargetDir)*.*" "$(SolutionDir)\InstallBuild" /NOTAVALIDSWITCH

I added a new target to System.Data.SQLite.Core.targets and worked (using Visual Studio 2013).

  <Target Name="CollectSQLiteInteropFiles"
          Condition="'$(CollectSQLiteInteropFiles)' != 'false' And
                     '$(OutDir)' != '' And
                     HasTrailingSlash('$(OutDir)') And
      <FilesForPackagingFromProject Include="%(SQLiteInteropFiles.Identity)">

We've got similar changes on the publishWithNuGetPkg branch.  I wonder if your
changes would work better.
