I have folder Project1 on my desktop. After I open it in VB.net 2008 and save it (File/Save Project1 as) as Project1_a, it gets saved inside Project1 folder:

 --Project1--        <-- at desktop
                  |
                  - Project1--
                                   |
                                    - Project1.vbproj
                                    - Project1_a.vbproj

How can I get it to save as:

 --Project1_a--        <-- at desktop
                     |
                     - Project1_a--
                                         |
                                         - Project1_a.vbproj

Question 1: How can I have as shown above?
Question2: How can I get started with version control (which may be the way to go)?

Thank you.

Hi,

When you use File/Save as option you are not saving the entire project, but just the vbproj file

To have the structure you want, create a new project with the New Name, and Add each Item from the old project to the new project using ADD EXISTING ITEM this will make a copy of each item

To start using Version Control you wil have to instal an application like Visual SourceSafe that integrates with Visual Studio and allow you to manage version of your individual Files,

Visual SourceSafe will add an option in the File menu that allow you to manage the version
