Duplicate ID of Packages "MyPackage" and "MyPackage" Error


#1

Hello Beta users,

As I receive many questions on this issue, here’s a summary what to do if this error occurs and explanation why it occurs.

Information for all who get this error:

Duplicate ID of Packages “MyPackage” and “MyPackage” (See the attachment.)

Explanation:

For Beta version 3.0.6, user.txg file was renamed to My Package.txg .
Some of you may have noticed this change and followed the Beta Installation Instructions.
Those who did not, need to make some modifications now.
(In the latest Beta, check out for .txg files has been implemented – this is why the error appeared suddenly.)

Please do the following provided that:

A: You have NOT modified user.txg file – it means, you have not edited forms and frames, you have not modified scripts and metamodels etc.

What to do: Simply delete the user.txg package.

B: You have modified user.txg file.

What to do:

  1. Delete My Package.txg.
  2. Rename your user.txg to My Package.txg.
  3. Open the package in any text editor and replace:
    User
    with:
    My Package

The problem will be solved then.

Note: The packages can be found e.g. at:
C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents\Toad Data Modeler\Packages{DCB5CB9B-CF65-4350-86B5-285D246FC5AC}\

In case of any problems, please write me back. Thanks.

Regards,

Vladka
