No, these files are not related to Visual Studio; they are needed for 
automake. The Medsphere installer seems to add a project type to VS via 
a registry hack, but no idea how they do it. You will have to look at 
the code in their SVN repository to find it out.

No idea... I think the GAC is shared between the .net versions and it 
shouldn't matter, but I'm not sure. It is also very strange that VS 
doesn't display the assemblies even after they have been installed.
