Hi

I want to copy a VB.net project that I have created and change its name.
Is it possible to rename an entire project like that?

Copy the directory that contains the project.

Open the project in the new directory.

Right click on the project in the Solution Explorer.

Select Rename and go for it.

If you also want to rename the .exe or .dll generated by the project, you will also need to open the project's Properties window (bottom of Project menu), select the Application Tab, and change the AssemblyName.

You might want to change the namespace, but this is usually not necessary, specially in a Windows Forms Application project.
