Hi,

A rather long answer; Go All carries out these operations:

1.If there is an *.RC file in your project, it is compiled to a *.res file. IF and only if, the command line in Project-Properties...-Resource-Res To Obj is not empty then the the *.res file is converted to *.obj file

2.Assembles the first asm file and ALL modules (if any in your project). All these are converted to *.obj files

3.Links all *.obj files produced in 1 & 2 above.

If in 1 & 2 above two (or more) *.obj files with the same name have been produced, then you have the error message you describe. Your problem is easily solved if you rename the file(s) that causes the problem. e.g. if your first asm file is one.asm and your RC file is one.rc, you coulde rename your RC file to something else e.g. rsrc.rc

Please let me know if it helps,

Antonis

When would you do this? The help file says nothing about this so some additional comments would be appreciated.

You really need to convert a res file to an obj file if you want the obj file for your own needs (some googling will enlighten about the Common Object File Format) e.g. use a different linker that does not support res files. Most probably you will not need it-I never do!
