I Already change then name in the Ase file but still happens...

Thanks in advance..

Hi and thanks,

I fixed this on Friday, its because its using the Name property in the release, which needs to be unique. If you get the latest source and build it, you should avoid this problem.

Thx...I´ll do that...i tried to pull changes in Tortoise, but although its has made changes, the buid version haven´t change, i´ll guess i have to download the latest source code...

Hi Adept,

I´ve downloaded the latest source code, pull repository with Mercurial Clone URL:, build Balder.dll and still ot the same error :(

Odd. Is it possible for you to give a reproduction of the problem - a project with the problem, then I can debug it and see whats going on.
