I just downloaded the Recipes and I started to get the error message, "Warning: Multiple Files In Your Search Path With the Same Name…".
The pathway indicates the duplicate files are in the maxref folder but when I look in that folder there is only one of the files.
Does anyone have a suggestion of how to prevent the warnings?
The search path isn’t just one file, it’s any file that Max typically looks in (some of which are added manually in Options> File Preferences…). So it’s probably telling you where the duplicate is, but the original may be in your max-externals folder or somewhere near your project.
You also can trash your Preferences folder and that will stop the warnings, at least for awhile. Though you might not want to trash it if you’ve set a lot of prefs. If you do, Max makes a new default Preferences folder the next time you run it.
