PDF file created when doing web builds


I am building a web release and with the build it is creating an empty PDF File. It also creates a setup.exe, which is fine. When I open this PDF the message displayed is in the image attached.
I do not know how and why this PDF is created, and I don't want it.. Any ideas anyone?

Solved the problem, I had selected the option to Generate Package Definition File in the release wizard. I unselected it, and when I built my release, the file wasn't created.

... Now I wonder why the option "Generate Package Definition File" produces a PDF file with no data, or even more importantly what the idea behind this option is...

I think it's a Package Definition File, used by older versions of SMS. (Perhaps open the file with Notepad?)
