The Descriptor value for a ToolboxItem must be unique. The Descriptor nodes 'descriptor1' and 'descriptor2' cannot share the same value. 

This project is governed by development policies defined in a policy file. Two of the Descriptor descriptions in your policy file share the same value. The value for each Descriptor must be unique.

To solve this problem

  1. Close the project.

  2. Open the policy file for this project in a text editor.

  3. Search the policy file for the Descriptor descriptions indicated in the error message.

  4. Confirm the correct value for each Descriptor, editing the values as needed.

  5. Make sure that the correct value appears whenever this Descriptor is referenced.

  6. Save and close the policy file.

  7. Reopen the project.
