Why do I get Nios II IDE Warning: "Invalid project path: Missing project folder or file: \altera.components\bin for Output path."?

Environment

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

In the Nios® II IDE for version 7.2 SP1 & SP2, in the Problems tab, the following warning can appear:  "Invalid project path: Missing project folder or file: \altera.components\bin for Output path."

This warning can be reproduced by creating a user specified workspace location.

This warning can be safely ignored.  This non-existent folder is referenced on purpose as a means of accelerating the C/C indexer feature of the Nios II IDE.  This prevents unnecessary searching and indexing of all the binary files under the nios2eds installation directory.
