# Multiple addons using the same name

I was trying to install the add-on Blam Master and for any reason was not showing up, and didn't show any action confirming the installation. I try to run it again an this error popped out:

Multiple addons using the same name found!
likely a problem with the script search path.
(see console details)


Looking at the console nothing shows up... Also, I tried to search for the duplicate file in the Program Files folder, and the AppData folder, but there is no duplicate add-on either.

How can I get rid of the warning? Is there a statement I need to execute in the console? I'm using Windows 10 i7 processor

• Check the system console blender.org/manual/interface/window_system/console_window.html , not the python console. The offenders will be in your addons folders. – batFINGER Mar 3 '16 at 12:20
• I have this same issue "Multiple addons using the same name" on MAC OS X. Don't know where to find the console or the duplicate add ons. Who can help ? – Old Man May 2 '16 at 9:10

In windows OS you can open the console form the menu:

Window->Toggle System Console:

There you should be able to find information on your error.

In your case you have a duplicated addon. This error can happen when you have two versions of the same addon as well.

The duplicate could be in two places:

On the programs folder in your system drive:

• C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\ version number \scripts\addons

or on the App data folder:
