The comment in the code says enough:

/* Make sure the registration is unique */

The name you try to use has already been registered.

I have changed the short_name, abbreviated name into different name in my own dissector file. Still i need to change in any other place. Please provide me a right solution to resolve this issue. This will helpful to use my own dissector as a new plugin in wireshark.
