Error - Pin count in a cell is different than in the referencing part

I imported an Altium project to Xpedition xDX Design. Both schematic and layout were imported correctly. However, i am having trouble to import parts into central libraries. In Altium, the pin count in symbol doesn't need to match pin count in footprint. One example, there are four mounting pins in a USB connector and you don't need to add those mounting pins into symbols. When i imported this kind of components into central libraries, i always received this error.

Here is what i tried to fix it.

  1. Deleted these parts from central libraries.
  2. Modified the symbol (added mounting pins)
  3. Still failed to copy original cell from PCB project to central libraries.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks.
