Hi guys, i have created a solution with several projects in them, i have named them generic things like server, client, filesystem. How do i configure MSVS to change the process names and application names of the exe, simply changing the exe file name won't cut it for me. I'm sure there is an easy way, a setting, setting up a resource file. I have search google, but alas, i have found little, i might be search for the wrong thing however. Cheers for your help in advance. JamesCobras

What programming language are you using and what version of Visual Studio are you using?

If the case is C/C++ and using Visual Studio 2003/2005/2008, you'd be able to change the name of the exe in the "Project Properties"->"Configration Properties"->Linker->General->"Output File". In 2010, it's under "Project Properties"->"Configuration Properties"->General->"Target Name".
