Hi,
    I've moved a couple of files around in a project, and when I try to run it now, it gives a 'Duplicate Resource Identifier' error. What does this mean, and how do I get rid of it?
Cheers.

Yo PiersBull,

When you get this type of error, it means that some components are using the same name of .res/.dcr file. Or that you install two different versions of the same component.. .they also use the same name for the .RES or .DCR file.
It also can be that in one .PAS file a .RES is defined and that in that .RES is the same pictures... etc (same name) or defined in the components DCR.

How to get rid of?

1. You can look for different versions of components
2. You can install every component one by one.
    If you get an error of this sort, open the .PAS file and look for the .RES
    Look at the DCR and RES
3. Then remove the duplicated one.
....
Regards, Zif.
