Hello,

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.

George

What you can do is select the Project in the solution view and at the top near the refresh button there should be a button that says "Copy Project" when you hover over it. You can also go to "Project" on the file menu and the option is in there too.

thanks...I figured it out...I did end up using the copy project, then renamed the vbproj file (not renaming it won't allow you to readd the new copy to the solution) then added the copy to the solution. Then i had to change the project settings (assembly name and root), then replaced all @Page directive Inherits attributes with the new assembly name and it worked.

Thanks anyhow!
