Remove the plugins and platform.
Add them again

#4

Hello,

no idea. If I follow the error message, then it seem it has something to do with your resources.

type or paste code here
```Error: Duplicate resources
Take look to the files erorr message provides and it entrys. Maybe you must only delete the doubbled entry.

Maybe it helps delete content of www folder and .sourcemaps. Additional  remove created resources in resource folder and in android and ios folder and xreate resources again. Maybe you should follow advice of smalwe. Maybe...

Best regards, anna-liebt

Hello,
okay thank, it’s working?
I guess it is not working. In that case post your

/Users/anspireagency/Dropbox/Doctory_Project/platforms/android/app/src/main/res/values/strings.xml

Maybe someone see what is wrong with it.

Also no luck, with @smalwe 's advice?

Best regards, anna-liebt

hello,
no idea because “it is not working” is not much information. Maybe, because it was something going wrong with entries you never have touched ( I guess), it is an idea to reinstall facebook related stuff.
