VB2010 change project name etc

Hey,

I started off with my project being "Book1" but now I have changed it to "Book2".

I have changed the assembly name, root namespace etc and all works fine.  

What I am needing to change is the following:
Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Book1 to Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Book2

Im not sure whether I can just rename them without causing any errors.

Also using Application.CommonAppDataPath brings up Book1 in its path, instead of Book2.

How can I completely change everything to Book2?

Thanks!
Jessee

You can safely change Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Book1 to Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Book2. All files are contained within that folder, and use relative paths.

Hey,

Changing that folder was fine.
I ran into trouble changing the folder contained within Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Book2
This folder contains:
Book1 (Folder)
Book2 (Microsoft Visual Studio Solution)
Book2 (Visual Studio Solution User Options)

If I change Book1 (Folder) to Book2, I get an error opening the project.
"One or more projects in the solution were not loaded correctly."

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Rename the folder "Book1" to "Book2". Then open up the solution file (Book2.sln) in Notepad and change "Book1" in the path to the project with "Book2".
