I'm fairly/very new to Visual Studio.NET and am trying to pick up on a small project I did when learning ASP.NET abnd C# using VS.NET about 18 months ago. I'm re-reading all the books and notes that I've long since forgotten and have been having a hard time remembering just how the IDE works and re-learning how all the IIS related stuff links together.
Anyway, I'd like to take a copy of the work from 18 months ago and start off on a new piece of work using that as the basis eventually I'd like to continue working on the original piece you see. I tried simply copying the folder from C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\OLD_WORK to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\NEW_WORK and double-clicked the OLD_WORK.sln but many of the files were pointing to the original folder....I even tried renaming it to NEW_WORK.sln etc. but that didn't help either. And when I renamed OLD_WORK.csproj to NEW_WORK.csproj it said:
"The project you are trying to open is a web project. You need to open it by specifyin gits URL path."
....when I tried to open it. Clearly this didn't work!....I could almost hear the computer laughing at me.....
Can someone help me out here because I suspect that after I've got the code up and running properly in the IDE I can get back to my books and make proper progress...I just want it so that the new project has all the paths pointing to the correct folder, is renamed appropriately and is in all senses properly resolved.
Thanks in advance
