Problem when migrating the solution


I've got quite a big Visual Studio .NET solution,
that consists of many projects, including few Windows
Services, and some console applications, and a setup
project that creates one nice setup for the whole bunch.

The resulting build was used by our customer to
support their customer, named, let's say, "Customer A" :)

Now I've got to create exactly the same solution
with some slight functional changes, that will
be designated to support "Customer B".

Both builds will have to be installed on the
same machines, so I need to customize the
services names, and so on.

But my question is that: can I make just
a copy of the existing solution, and, after
some customization, build a new product from it?

I know there are such properties like ProjectGuid
within the *.csproj files, that will remain the
same. Can this make a problem when trying to
install both builds on the same machine? Are
there any other issues? Do you know where to
find some more information for such tasks?

Thanks in advance
