My solution has has 2 projects in it.  One is the main project and the other is the installation project for it. The solution and the projects in it are added to MS SourceSafe.  I checked in the solution and then I changed the solution and the projects' names today and  also the local file folder on my PC.  I then deleted the old solution folder on the sourcesafe and created a new one with the new name.  I'm trying to tied the new named solution to the sourcesafe but it's now complaining that the xxx.csproj can only be saved in the oldnamed folder.  Is there a way to fix this?  Thanks.

all u got to do is delete the projects in the source safe(completely including the solution file) an add the new ones from the changed folder..

u also have to remove the individul project from the solution (in the studio not VSS)  and the add them back from the new folder or else the folder change wont be reflected.
