I have created a webapp project in Visual Web Developer Express on my machine at home. I wish to now transfer that project to another machine at the client site for example (and then update the references to databases to new locations etc). What is the simplest
way of doing this, as I cannot seem to find a copy project menu item. I have managed to find the project folder on the object browser and copied that onto a pen drive. Will I be able to open this as a project on the other machine (also running visual web dev
express). I am also a bit confused as I would also like to 'save a copy of the project as' while I am working on it - a sort of version increment so I can keep the original and then make changes to the new copy. I cant seem to do this in the same way that
I can in a visual basic project.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

You can simply open your project in a new computer by transfering the project folder to the new machine. But make sure that your project does not have dependencies to your local machine. If you have any references (images, DLL files etc.), please include
them in your project folder too and give relative paths for them. You may have to alter all the absolute paths (If you have given any) when you open the project in your new machine.
