'ThisFormsName' has the same name as another type exposed in a 'My' group. Rename the form or its enclosing namespace. (converting 2003-2005)

hi, im converting my project from 2003 to 2005
i have 30 forms that give me this problem:
'EnterFormNamHere' has the same name as another type exposed in a 'My' group. Rename the form or its enclosing namespace.      

now what i could figure is that this comes from a form that i copied and pasted.
e.g. my form is called ABC_Mail.

i went through all the resx files and the only time ABC_Mail occurs is in ABC_Mail form itself.

i cannot find other forms where ABC_Mail occurs.

i can rename ABC_Mail to ABC_Mail1, but that does not solve the cause of the problem and it takes 3 minutes for the refactoring to go through

thanks!

Hi jxharding,
----------

what happens if you remove the form from the 2005 project and import it as an existing item through the project explorer from your 2003 project folder?

If renaming the form doesn't fix the problem then it might suggest that it is not that form that is causing the problem.
