What's the best way to save a new version of a project in VB.NET?

Hi,

So I have a project and I want to in effect 'Save As...' to MyProject1.1.

If it was a single file, I could just go 'Save As...' and rename the new one. What I've done is to copy the entire project file and rename the .vbp file name. That seems to have worked, but I'm not sure if it's a 'proper' way to do it.

So the qn is: What's the best way to save a new version of a project?

Thx!

I just go into Windows Explorer, and copy the entire folder to a new location, and then open the project in the IDE, and rename different parts, like the solution and project in the Solution Explorer.

Thank you Learned One. So, by 'the different parts' do you mean the Solution's name and the Project's name ONLY? i just want to be clear about what needs to be done. Thx.   :--)

I just did this yesterday:

1) Copy folder in Explorer
2) Open the .sln file in the IDE
3) Select the solution node in the Solution Explorer
4) With the Properties window visible, enter a new name in the (Name) property.
5) Select the project node in the Solution Explorer
6) Enter a new file name for the project in the Project File property.

Thx! Why can't we just 'Save As...' as in most applications?  (@_@)    <--- idle thought
