duplication of same mapping objects

Hello,

I map my app (myapp) since a few years for new items.

I don't understand why, when I map new items, the Name Mapping increase a number for the process name as the following :

MyApp

MyApp_new

MyApp_new2

MyApp_new3

etc...

 

When I edit the mapping, there is only "Process Name" which is obviously "MyApp".

No need to duplicate entries...

 

I have this problem since a long time, and still have it in the version 14 of TC.

 

The app is coded in Delphi.

 

Thank you !

Can we see screenshots of your Mapped Objects and Aliases panes in NameMapping, please?

Re: duplication of same mapping objects

I used to see those sorts of entries when we merged Name Mapping files and there were duplicates.

Re: duplication of same mapping objects

I too faced similar problems, this generally happens when you have multiple instance of application running and you are mapping objects from different instance.

 

Try running single Instance and map the objects and check.

Hi Robert,

I would prefer not to paste screen shots of my mapping

Hi Marsha,

 

It's surely this case, I have 2 groups of projects and times to times I have to merge the mapping files.

And, as you said, sometimes it warns that there is duplications.

 

Is there a tool to view theses duplications ? I have 4Mb mapping files and it would take me too much time to see same names with different mapping.

Thank you anyway,

Mehdi

I'd just do a Search in the Name Mapping Editor for _new
