Discovery Exclusion of Deployment Utility Directory Fails

The Discovery Exclusion file contains "[TestStand Public]\\Components\\Tools\\Deployment Utility\\.*" in the [Exclude Paths] however adding the C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\TestStand 2019 (64-bit)\Components\Tools directory as an input item will still pull in the Deployment Utility directory and its contents.
