There are most likely two entries for GExperts. Remove one and the error should go away.

These entries come from

  1. The installer (GExperts=”path\to\dll”), because it always uses GExperts as the name for the entry.
  2. The Expert Manager (GExpertsXxx=”path\to\dll”), because it uses the name of the dll file for the entry.
