How to make a copy of an entire C# Visual Studio 2008 project?

310 100+
Can anyone tell me the best way to copy an entire existing project in Visual Studio 2008 Express using C# to another project with another name?

I cannot seem to find such an option in the menu structure. I can only seem to find where I save individual cs files, or "save" the entire project which saves it under its current name.

I want to start making some radical changes to an existing project but want to save a copy of the project as it is now before I do so.

Thanks!

There should be a .proj file that you can copy. If you open it up in a .txt(notepad or wordpad recommended) you can change the files that it's pointing to to be under the proj name if they have changed. After that it's just replacing the file names you are pointing to in the actual code itself. Or you can "Open Poject" in Visual Studio(if you use it) and then add to the proj the files you want and modify them to point to the files you want. I think thats what you are asking. I'm not really sure. There are a couple ways to do it. But you are almost always going to have to change some files around and some code. Hope that Helps. Sorry if it doesn't.
