You need to delete the duplicates from DCR first.  That is, go through DCR, and remove those duplicate entries which you do not want.  Then, run a new Discovery, and see if the deleted duplicates come back.

Assuming you are in the directory where the patch lies (which you should be).  Run:


D:\progra~1\cscopx\bin\perl CSCtb16166-0.pl

Go Start > Run, and type in cmd.  Launch the command prompt, then change directory to the directory which contains the CSCtb16166-0.pl script.  Then run:


D:\progra~1\cscopx\bin\perl.exe CSCtb16166-0.pl
