Dear Experts,

I have made a programm. But now I want to change the project name of my programm.
When I rename the project name in the Project Manager in Delphi that doesn't work.
Is it possible? And what is the best way to do this?

Greetings, Peter Kiers

did you try the  " save as"  option in your delphi IDE  ?

and one important remark:

do not rename the delphi file by hand eg.  >> rename  myfile.pas  mynewfilename.pas <<  ,
this will not work as the unit  name does no langer match to the file name.

Use  the "Save Project as" option, this way you can change your project's name without trouble

after "save project as" and recompiling,
you can actually delete all the projectname.* files
