How to 'Save As' my entire VB.Net solution in VS2003
Posted on 2006-04-01
I have developed an application in VB.Net (in V.Studio2003). Let's call this application 'Version1'.
I now wish to enhance the application (the end result of which will be called, strangely enough, 'Version2').
I want to preserve Version1 exactly as it is right now, so that any development/enhancements I make to the application will be reflected only in Version2. Version 1 will remain as it was before I did any such development work.
How do I safely 'Save As' my Version1 solution to a new 'Version2'...?. Or do I need to 'Save As' the Project? Or should I simply copy the entire folder containing Version1 and simply rename the folder, solution and project files to 'Version2'...?
I know this is a reasonably simple question, but is there anything I need to specifically watch for when trying to copy Solutions in this way? I don't want any of the enhancements to affect any of the *.vb files that relate to Version1.
