Fixing the "Duplicate resource" error


If you are trying to link custom resources to your Delphi application, you mighz get the "Duplicate resource" error. Here's how to deal with it.

The projects resource file name is generated by the Delphi IDE wizard, and should not be modified. Delphi generated resources ("{$R *.DFM} for example") contain any imagesyou placed on a buttons, for example.
