    Starting fresh (vb6)

    I want to create an exact copy of a program that I made which uses a few forms and modules, however, I cannot just save as a new project and go from there can I. When I did that, If i modified the form for that project it would modify it for the other program too. The reason I want to do this is so I can make a few changes in one of them (hide certain things) and have the other one fully functional. So....how do I make an exact copy and keep the forms separate??

    EXport the forms/modules.Import them, and change their names.

    Don't forget to not DUPLICATE Public functions/subs/variables.

    The .vbp file stores relative paths to all the components of a project. So if you have 2 .vbp files in the same folder, they will point to the same forms. Just copy all files of a project to another folder and open the copied .vbp file.
