I am not sure if I am in the right forum. If not, I apologize.


I've been working on an assignment in school using Visual Studio.

I want to continue at home so I downloaded Visual Studio Express, but I don't know how to transfer the files!

In Eclipse, I could just export/import the projects or change the workspace. However, I could not find similar commands in the Visual Studio.

I tried just copying the project folder, but the program could not see it.

I appreciate any help.

In your "My Documents\Visual Studio xxxx\Projects" directory you'll find a directory which was the name you made when you saved it at school. Copy that directory onto your floppy/usb stick/cd etc and then place it in a similar location on your pc at home (eg if you had visual studio 2005 at school but downloaded 2008 at home - a) it will update and taking it back to school will be harder, b) the name will change from 2005 to 2008 .. then file open and find the project directory will be there, you can then go into it, and open the whatever .sln file you had made.
