Copy Visual Studio.net project & namespace rename

Posted on 2004-10-28

I have successfully copied a VS.net203 project and changed the name of the assembly and its namespace( for the project properties, the *.cs files, and the aspx files). When I build the project, a *.dll and a *.pdb file appear in the \bin directory with the old namespace name. If I delete them from the folder, then and verify that the file no longer exists in the solution explorer, ther reappear when I rebuild the project - even though there is a dll and a pdb file with the NEW namespace as well.

Did I miss changing a setting when I changed the namespace and assembly names somewhere?

Visual Studio .NET IDE -> Project -> Project Properties. Change the Assembly Name and you willl be done.

Best, Nauman.

I was sure I already changed the assembly name and the namespace at the same time as I stated in my first post. For what ever reason it was NOT changed. I may have hit 'cancel' instead of 'ok'.

I took your advice and changed it again. I then deleted the old assemblies, and it works perfectly.

Thanks for the speedy response!
