I would recommend taking the advice you've already seen and remove the file from the package, especially if your targets are corporatebuild machines.

Is their way i can keep this file in INSTALLDIR ..once the shortcut is launched .I am asking whether ...It will be refereing the file on system32 or INSTALLDIR.
Can i keep this file in Common file folder and Isolate it..... such that once the shortcut exe is launched it will be refereing to the file in Common files folder

Why cant you just delete the file from your package...

Its a Windows protected file, google about WPF and read more...Its not recommended to install a WP file from your package....
