I have similar dlls for 1.1 and 2.0 versions of the same project. The 1.1 version have been renamed and moved. The solution compiles right after I've deleted the old references and re-added them with the new paths.

Once I open up the solution again, they are pointing to the old paths again. I'm working in VS 2003 with sourcesafe; I've made the project files writeable and upon checking them in notepad, see the new correct paths, so i assume the project files are not the problem.

Where and how is the path being overwritten, and how do I edit it?

Check the following in ur project:

1.Problem with the Reference path. In project reference page you can see one button with named "Reference path". Remove everything from there. that is the problem.
2. If any of ur DLL compiled with old DLL from the older path. you can not change the reference. so complile that dll with new path
