I have a MFC project on a drive and copied it to a different dirve.

Then I renamed the original folder so there would be no chance of VS6 could reference the old drive/folders.

I then opened the project .dsw file and that seemed to go OK.

Then I did a "Clean" and Build All. Checked the time and date stamp of the new .obj and exe and it made sense.

When I start the debugger ir issued a message "One or more files are out of date or do not exist" ........ Would you like to build them?

Well the files do exist and they are new.

I checked the path in Project / Link and made sure it pointed to the new folder.
Recompiled and tried Debug again.,.. Same message.

I've moved projects before using the same procedure and never had a problem...  

What did I do wrong ?
