creating a new vs 2003 project based on another

    I have a web application that is complete and published. I want to do some
    major enhancements, but I want to start a new project so I can continue to
    do maintenance on the current one without having all the new code scattered

    My question is the best way to do this...if i create a new project and add
    in files from the old, all the .aspx page directives point to
    "oldproject.pagename.aspx" in the references attribute. I would have to go
    in and change all these to make it work, which is out of the question.

    I am sure there is a good established way to do this, I just can't figure
    out what it is. Your help is appreciated!

  2. Hi,

    Based on my understanding, your question is: when you created a new 2003
    web application, you copied webforms from another web application and want
    to change the namespace in the webforms. Please correct me if I've
    misunderstood anything.

    I think you don't need to change the namespace in the webform. The only
    thing you need to do is change the default namespace in your new web
    application to the old namespace in your project properties. This way when
    you add webform to it, the namespace is still the same.

    You new web application has different virtual directory name with the old
    one, it should run independently with the old web app.
