I select Primary output for the application folder for my setup installer project. I'm getting the following warnings.  How can I take care of this?  Thanks.

Building file 'C:\Projects\UnityAdmin\UnityAdminSetUp\Release\UnityAdminSetUp.msi'...
WARNING: 'comadmin.dll' should be excluded because its source file 'C:\WINNT\System32\Com\comadmin.dll' is under Windows System File Protection.
WARNING: 'COMSVCS.DLL' should be excluded because its source file 'C:\WINNT\System32\COMSVCS.DLL' is under Windows System File Protection.

select any file you want exclude, right click on it and then choose "exclude".

These warnings might appear because those files might be system files, I mean they come with Windows, and you no longer need to install them with you setup.
