Making copy/duplicate of ASP.NET project
Posted on 2006-10-20
I know this topic has been covered a lot and I've read through teh past posts but still cannot seem to get this to work.
I need to take an existing web app project and duplicate it within the same solution with a different name.
Short of creating a new project with a new name and copying all old files into the new project and then using find and replace to change the @Page Inherits directive for my code-behind files, is there an easier way?
I've tried copying the old project into a new folder and editing the vbproj file and the webinfo files...if i give the new project assembly a different name, then it says it can't load the code behind files...if i give it the same name then I receive namespace collision warnings (old project.object collides with new project.object names).
I'm finding this WAYYYY harder than it really should be.
Any help would be appreciated.
