Create several exe files of the same program

Hello,

I have a program which consists of about four forms. I need to create four versions of this program to go into four locations and store the versions on one PC for editing.
I have tried starting new projects and just importing the forms from the original program, because I cant be bothered creating all new forms again, but when I do this the changes I make in the new project affect the original project.

So is this a case of designing the forms again four times over or can I simply copy the forms so the programs can be edited and run as different projects,

Hope this makes sense, thanks in advance,

Gareth

Instead of importing the forms, you need to copy them.  Select the first form to be copied, and view its code.  From the menu, select (Edit --> Select All) followed by (Edit --> Copy).  Now go to your new project, select the default form and view its code.  This time from the menu,  select (Edit --> Select All) followed by (Edit --> Paste).  This will paste the controls and the code from the first form over the second form.

Now you have two copies of the same form in different projects that will not affect each other.
