Copying to a File
Before copying any project to file, make sure you have verified the following:
You can also use the following SQL to check your project. Verify that
UPGRADEACTION is set to
0 for Copy and
TAKEACTION is set to 1 for Upgrade.
select OBJECTTYPE, OBJECTVALUE1, OBJECTVALUE2, OBJECTVALUE3, OBJECTVALUE4, UPGRADEACTION, TAKEACTION from PSPROJECTITEM where PROJECTNAME = 'YOUR_PROJECT_NAME';
Once you have verified these setting you can then copy your project to a file.
Copying from a File
This means importing a project from a file.
There are two files associated with all exported projects:
.ini file contains meta-data about the project while the
.xml file contains the actual project definitions, so it can be quite large. There are some catches when copying a project from a file to watch out for:
.xmlfiles need to be inside a folder with same name as the project.
.xmlfiles cannot be read only. Check the file attributes.
