1. Download XN Resource Editor at http://www.wilsonc.demon.co.uk/d10resourceeditor.htm
2. Load your DLL and expand Version/1/English.
3. In Right pane dblclick on InternalName Value and change it.
4. Save the DLL and you now have a new InternalName.

Click on File menu and choose make, VB will ask you to enter the name of the dll.  change the name as test1.dll and click ok. You should have it.

Have you tried clicking on Project, Properties, and renaming the Project Name to paulnew? (When you Make, keep the name paul.dll)

Hi,

Yes the I have tried that. The projetc name is something completely different and will remain that way.

The only method I have of doing this is to re-compile as a different dll name and re-name the dll back to the original name. Not a good idea as the dependency files are different.

I suggest create a dll as I mentioned and then try renaming the dll file. so that only its external name will be changed and internal name remains the same
