Renaming a Project

Postby jossch on Tue Apr 22, 2008 7:30 am

Can you rename a project? and if so, how do you do it?

The development team branches sourcesafe and the help being part of that structure is now located in two locations, with me updating both :? So, I would like to rename one of the two versions so I know which one I'm working in.

Thanks,
Josette

Just rename the flprj file. The renamed version won't initially appear in your list of recent projects, of course, but when you open it it will point to all the correct files.

You can also rename the root folder if you want.
Until next time....

Did I mention it is all in SourceSafe? Renaming it that way is going to make it fun, not :mrgreen:

I renamed the file, but now I am receiving an error when I compile.

Internal Object Error
Object reference not set to an instance of an object -- Compiler (Internal Error)

I can still compile the original project, but not this one.

You might need to delete the Output folder before compiling.

What I ended up having to do was to copy the original project folder, rename it to the new name, and then point the SourceSafe Working folder to that folder. Now I have both projects renamed and compiling correctly.

I have no idea what the problem was, but it's working now :?

Thanks for the help.
