Foundation: How to move a project around
Keywords: Foundation, Move, Copy
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 unzipping).
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.
