Error: Duplicate Items are not supported by the "Resources" parameter

I'm getting an error and I don't know why or how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated. The error is, (The item "obj\Debug\DLM.DLMForms.MDIDLM.resources" was specified more than once in the "Resources" parameter.  Duplicate items are not supported by the "Resources" parameter.). I found DLM.DLMForms.MDIDLM.resources in my obj\debug folder but I don't know what or where the "Resources" parameter is.  How do I resolve this?

    Hello Eric_Trogdon,

    Maybe this will help:

    ?Error 1 The item ?xxx? was specified more than once in the ?Resources? parameter

    Duplicate items are not supported by the "Resources" parameter error when building project



    Accepted Solution

    I resolved this by getting rid of the clone form and making one of the buttons enabled and visible only for specified users.  That way I could do it all on a single form so the duplicate items went away.  I never figured out exactly what was being duplicated but no matter.
