Renaming a Win32 Visual C++ 6.0 to something else without messing-up all the files, etc.

I have a Win32 project I just finished in Visual C++ 6.0.

I want to rename the following files:

MENUDEMO DEP
MENUDEMO DSP
MENUDEMO DSW
MENUDEMO MAK
MENUDEMO RC
MENUDEMO NCB
MENUDEMO PLG
MENUDEMO APS
MENUDEMO OPT
MENUDEMO CPP

To p3tknowlton.WHATEVER

Now, I know that it is not as simple as just RENAMING these files.  There are associations inside these files and if I just arbitrarily start renaming files BAD THINGS will happen.

What is a really easy way to rename a Project and all relevant files to SOMETHING ELSE?

I assume doing this from Inside Visual C++ is the safe way to go...but I don't know how to proceed.  None of the Save or Save As... options under the File menu look like they will do what I want.

Thanks so much for any help!

Unfortunately, VC++ provides no automation to make this task easier.

You need to:

1) Rename the files.
2) Search throughout the project for #include directives. Fix 'em.
3) Remove the old files, by name, from your project and re-add the new ones.

If you're using MFC, you will need to:

4) Delete the *.CLW file
5) Recreate the CLW file in the ClassWizard.
