Foundation: How to move a project around


Keywords: Foundation, Move, Copy

Urgency: Standard

General Description: Two methods to move a Foundation project around
are described below.


1) Use the File->Copy Project command in the Foundation
Project Manager to copy the project to another location.
This can be used to copy projects onto a floppy and then
onto another PC. This function also allows you to rename
a project.

2) Use the File->Archive... command. This uses PKZIP to
zip up the project directory, the <project>.PDF file, and
some other files which may be needed (your current
AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS, etc). The zip file can then be
transferred to another PC and unzipped with PKUNZIP -d.
(Foundation 6.0.0 users will need to move the
<project>.PDF file up one directory level after

Method 2 requires that the project name remain the same, and
that the project is placed in the same directory as it was on
the original PC. So if a user archives a project called
C:\MYPROJ\PROJECT1.PDF, it must be unzipped into a directory
called C:\MYPROJ (Foundation 6.0.1), or C:\MYPROJ\PROJECT1
(Foundation 6.0.0). The project can then be moved or renamed
using the Copy Project command.

Both methods copy *everything* in the project directory,
including the XPROJECT\ subdirectory, if one exists.
