Errors encountered in BRE deploying utility for SWIFT Schemas

Recently in one of my training session,  we encountered the following error, apparently it turns out to occur during the accidental double deployment of the policies for of an assembly.

Additionally, the environment which was on windows server 2012 did not seem to run the BRE utility, though it gave the success status message in the wizard, So we had to manually browse to the folder and all the appropriate vocabulary and policies.

Folder to find policies :- C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for SWIFT 2013 Message Pack\SWIFT Messages\A4SWIFT-SRG2013\Base Policies
