Renaming an entire solution

Post by giuseppe.lacagnina » Fri Nov 27, 2015 12:35 pm

Hi.

I have a big solution with a name like HTML_TESTS. It contains several projects and test cases.
I realize that I might need to have another solution to stop this one to grow uncontrollably.
I would need to rename it to, say, HTML_TESTS_1, so I could have 2, 3...
Is there any potential danger in renaming the whole solution while leaving the names of the test cases and the projects unchanged?

Thanks! Cheers,

G.

Hello Giuseppe,

In general, renaming an existing Ranorex Solution shouldn't cause any issues.
After renaming the solution, please Clean and Build the Solution again.

Just in case please create a backup of the complete Ranorex Solution.
I would generally suggest creating backups of your Solution regularly.

Regards,
Johannes
