Why does VC not have any function that allows u to copy & rename a project ? I dont wanna start from scratch every time. Ive been looking for a utillity that does this automatically for me, and have only found one, but it only works for VC++6, and not VC.net. (CopyWiz) Is there another app that does this? How do you guys solve this problem?

I''ve had that problem too earlier.
But then i created an appwizard for my projects. Now i just choose New Project > My AppWizard and choose the type and i get a fresh clean project with my common files included plus an empty framework already done.

The downside is, the documentation for AppWizards, esp. in VS .Net is quite non-existant. When you create a new custom wizard you suddenly have a html page plus a monster of javascript which will create your project. And there''s a lot of tweaking needed to get your project done (the automatically created appwizard creates debug and release configs, but does not add debug information to debug, go figure).

Thanks for the tip! Maybe i''ll look into that sometime later, but for now i really don''t wanna go through all that just to copy/rename my project.

This must be one of the most irritating loss of functions in vc...

Any other solutions ?
