I have copied all the files and folders for a VB.Net project to a new folder on my PC. I would like to test a few changes without effecting my original. The project contains a form with a COM Excel Worksheet 9 object. When I try to open the copied version of the project, nothing happens. I have started a brand new project in a different folder as an experiment, and inserted the existing form with the excel worksheet, the worksheet object together with everything else on the same panel is missing.
How are you supposed to make a duplicate project in another folder that works (just as it did with VB6 when you made a copy)?
