Does this mean it can't be done???

P: 7
On October 10th, I posted a question asking how to back up a VB project in such a way that the back-up isn't modified by further work on the original. To date, no-one has come up with an answer.

Does this mean that it can't be done? After all, If an MS Office document is saved and renamed, modifying the original does not alter the new file. Why doesn't this work for VB?

Can someone please let me know whether this is possible or whether I'm wasting my time trying?

Please help.
Thanks.

Wat i feel is that if u save a copy of ur project somewhere else then changing the original will not at all affect the copy. Are u using VB6?

You need to keep in mind that a VB "project" is more than one file. (Keep in mind I'm also talking about VB6 - not really familiar with .Net or 2005 version/s). Each form, module, class etc is a separate file. To make a useful backup copy you would need to copy the entire folder. I usually do so by zipping the folder.
