my add-ons file shows this error message but when I go to the Blender files there is no corresponding file to the message,

" multiple addons with the same name found "

Please delete one of each pair

Make Clothes:

C\User\thund\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\scripts\makeclothes_init_.py


when I go to these files there is no makeclothes or target file. I have also dumped the addon where it is no longer showing in the Addon list and even uninstalled Blender and reinstalled , and deleted my Blender files before reload however I did not dump the user files in my docs but checked and these files are not there ether , but when I reloaded the add-ons I got the same message.

Check in the scripts/addons directory where the blender is installed.

  • $\begingroup$ There are two locations for blender to look for its add-ons. One is in the user's AppData, and another is in the blender_install_dir/scripts/addons. So if they are not located in one of them, then probably they are located in another. And then what - it's up to the user. And about a good answer. Maybe I'm a bit stupid, but I'm sure that one who looks for a file needs the file location, not the good answer. ;-) $\endgroup$
