VS2005 - Renaming Issues

Rob
Is it easy to rename solutions and projects in VS2005 ? If so, what is the
safest way ?

I have a solution called ABC1, there are 2 projects in this solution ABC1
and ABC1install.

I want to rename them as ABC2 (solution), and ABC2 (project) and ABC2install
(project).

I would also want to be able to run both sets of projects from 1 machine...

Just right-click the project and/or solution in the Solution Explorer and
choose rename....just as you would rename a file on your hard drive.

Your Solution Explorer may not be showing the actual solution in the SE
window though, but if you go to the Tools menu and choose Options and then
go to the "Projects and Solutions" node, you can show the solution by
checking "Always show solution".

Note that changing your project and/or solution names will not change any
namespaces to change, so you may want to change those in the project's
properties dialog (double click My Project in the SE window).

Thanks Scott,

How might I change the folder that the files reside in ?

A project folder can be picked up and moved to any local location you wish
just by normal Windows move operations, but when you open the solution, you
will get an error that the project couldn't be located. If you get passed
that error and simply choose to add an existing project to the solution, you
can then browse to the new location for the existing project.
