Hi all-

I am starting to pick up asp.net.  I downloaded Ibuyspy Store ... a free open source storefront.  I tried everything out and like what I see.  I want to use it "Store" for commercial purposes.  The documentation/ user agreement says that ... If I were to use the Storefront commercially that I need to get rid of everything that mentions IBuySpy.  

Here lies my problem.  I can change everything to what I want but I can not change the "namespace".  The namespace is inside the "Store.dll".  I have tried and can change the .dll to AnotherName.dll.  But can't change the namespace.  Almost everypage refers to the IBuySpy namespace.  

Please if you can go to http://www.ibuyspy.net .  Download the IBuySpy VS SDK , in there lies all the files I have mentioned.

I downloaded the IBuySpy store and opened it in Visual Studio.NET and performed the following steps:

1) Select Edit --> Find and Replace --> Replace

2) Set Find what to IBuySpy

3) Set Replace with to MyNameSpace

4) Click on the Current project in the Search group

5) Click Replace All

6) Confirm big warning

7) Right-click on the Project in the Server Explorer

8) Select Properties

9) Change Common Properties --> General --> Default Namespace to MyNameSpace and click OK

Ran the project and it worked fine.

Thanks :)

I didn't notice if the references became grey on my project at home. It compiled and ran perfectly so I suppose it didn't matter.

I looked at the project and all the reference icons were grey, but I believe thats the original color. Does your project with the new namespace run?
