I have a working Compact Framework solution written in VB .NET running within VS 2003 for a CE .NET 4.2 device that I want to copy, as the basis for a new solution.

I want to copy this project, because when I create a new project and add the individual components, it won't run on the the CE device.

However, if you do 'Save As' in VS it only saves the reference you have highlighted and if you copy the folder that the solution 'lves' in there are hard coded references to the project name and it won't run.

I want a copy of the original solution with a different name in a different folder.

Close VS. Open Windows Explorer. Copy everything except the solution file. Create a new solution in the new folder and add existing projects (from the new folder) to it.
