Press [Alt-Enter] to open properties dialog for the current project. Select "Build -> C6000 Compiler -> Include Options" and delete "${C6000_CSL_CG_ROOT}/include" and "../csl/include" (C6000 may vary depending on used DSP family):

The project should compile now without warnings.

2.3 Check Memory Model

Depending on target DSP and age of the project file the importer is not able to recognize the correct memory model. Check the memory model under "Processor Options" and choose memory model "large" if this option is missing.
