Does AddinExpress.MSO.2005.tlb need to be deployed?

When I create a setup project with Visual Studio Installer it pulls in AddinExpress.MSO.2005.tlb as a dependency, but if I create a setup project with WiX, it doesn't. The source path generated for this type library is long (see below) and causes an error with regcap.exe during the setup project build, so I would prefer to exclude this file if I could.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Add-in Express\Add-in Express for Microsoft Office and .NET\AddinExpress.MSO.2005, Version=8.2.4371.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4416dd98f0861965\AddinExpress.MSO.2005.tlb

Hello Nicholas,

You don't need to deploy any .TLB (OLB) file unless you do this on purpose. Thre's an issue with creating a Windows Installer project in VS 2013-2015. It is filed down in our bug-tracking DB under ##9220 & 9221.

Thanks Andrei. Are there any other issues under ##9220 & 9221 worth noting?

Also, some files are not removed from the list of files to deploy. Since these files are also mentioned in the Dependencies section, this causes deploying such files twice; this issue creates a warning.

Probably, there are other effects. We look into these issues.
