    When using composite resources, it becomes impossible to use PSDscResources, as it refuses to import. Worse, it's presence alone prevent the configuration from being run, thus making it impossible to create any mof

    The error given is:

    ImportClassResourcesFromModule : Exception calling "ImportClassResourcesFromModule" with "3" argument(s): "Resource name 'WindowsPackageCab' is already being used by another Resource or
    At C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\PSDesiredStateConfiguration\PSDesiredStateConfiguration.psm1:2109 char:35

    I've opened an issue on Github, but maybe someone here has a clue about this problem?

    The problem arise as soon as you import a composite resource inside a configuration and have PsDscResources installed.
