Read Only Files From TFS Are Installed With MSI

I am including some content files(xml, .config, ...) from my project. However since the files are under TFS, they are read only and my Basic MSI project will install them as read only. How to tell the MSI project to not make them read only?

Depending on how the files are included to the component(s), you may be able to use File Properties Dialog Box to overwrite read-only file attribute. However, I would have preferred to do it during build time. I am not sure how your build environment is set up, if feasible, you can change file attributes with a script after copying files from source location to build staging area. So when building installation package, the file attributes are already set as needed.
