Filepaths of forms

I created a vb program with 2 forms and accidentally saved the second to a separate directory from that with the VBP (project) file.

The program works okay until I transfer the files to the network drive.  When you try to run the program from the network drive it says "Path not found ........ continue loading project?"  Where ........ is a mishmash of a directory path of the network drive and the path of the file that was saved to the wrong directory.  I then have to add the form manually using the project menu.  This would be okay but we have a problem saving vb projects on the network drive.

I need some way of changing the path that is somehow "stuck" in the projects mind!

Does anyone recognize this problem?  Is there some way of firstly looking at the filepaths that the project recognizes along with the filenames which are always displayed.  Secondly changing these paths.

First copy the file to the same directory as the projects VBP file.

Open the VBP file in notepad and change the path for the form, or since it's in the same directory you can remove the path.

Hope this helps.
