The Resolve Ambiguity dialog box appears when the debugger cannot choose the location to display. For example, if you are using C++ templates, you can create multiple functions from a single function template.

Each function created from the template has its own disassembly code, and the debugger does not know which code you want to view. The Resolve Ambiguity dialog box enables you to select the location you want from a list of all corresponding locations.
