    renaming a project in VC++ 6.0

    I was wandering if it's possible and if yes how to rename an existing project.
    I want to save versions of an application as I'm developing it, so I can go back to them. That's why I want to rename it.

    thanks.

    Most people use things like RCS or CVS or SCCS or ... to manage that kind of problem.

    You "check in" all your code and project files when you reach some convenient point, and if you ever need to go back, you can "check out" the whole shooting match whenever you need to go back.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I haven't heard of this before, but I read on-line and found some free software to download. The only thing is that I can't donload anything to the computer I'm using, so I can't do that.
    I also read that some comp's come with it. I tried searching for the generic names but nothing came up on my comp (PC). Is there a way around it? or maybe I was tryign the wrong file names, any good ones?

    Well if you can't download stuff, then you're in a tight spot.

    If you have the uber-expensive VC++, then the product which is packaged with it is called sourcesafe.

    I suppose at a push you could just copy the whole thing to a directory names yyyymmddhhmm whenever you feel the need for a backup.
