I have a Project placed on the desktop.  The project consists of one module and one form.  I'd like to move the project to the Drive E in my computer.  I tried "save the project as" and "save the module as"  to move it into drive E, but it doesn't work.  What to do?

Do you want to move the PROJECT (for further development purposes) or simply to be able to run the Executable?

If you want to be able to do development with the project, then you must have Visual Studio installed on your PC, and then you should be able to simply copy all of the files from the development folder on  your laptop to the same directory structure on your PC.

Odd. You can open the VBP (with NotePad) and manually correct any hard-coded paths... what error do you get, exactly?

did you try creating a NEW project, delete the defalut form that is created, and then Add the existing elements from the old project (form and module) to the NEW project?

First decide where you want to save. Let us say, E:\VB now follow these steps,
1) Open vb project
2)right Click on the module say save as in the menu,
3)save window pops.browse to E:\VB
4)click save
You have now saved module.
Now save the project,
Assuming that project is open,
1)Right click on it say save as
2)save window pops.browse to E:\VB
3)click save

Now you have to add module to your project,
1)open the project saved already in E:\vb
2)you will see that the project does not have module
3)Right click on project
4)Choose on add modules
5)Browse window pops
6)Browse to E:\VB choose your module
7)Click on add
8)on the file menu save project

To verify,
Close the apllication and open the project again and see is you have the module.
Good luck.
