I have Eclipse and ADT on two separate computers. I have a workspace designated for each. I, "El Nooberino" as I'll refer to myself, tried to copy and paste the project from one workspace to the other thinking that would work, cause that's how life works, Right??? Long story short. Is there a process to transfer projects that doesn't involve copy and pasting? If not how do I close one project to work on another in one Eclipse?

If this is posted in another thread I apologize, it didn't show up in my searches. A redirection would be acceptable.

There are a number of pitfalls that can happen when just copying a project from one machine to another, but it helps to go into more detail about how it's not working, otherwise you're only going to get random guesses.

Fair enough. After I've copied and pasted the project folder under "workspace", I go to 'Open project' only to see only the original project I started in that version of Eclipse. The pasted project doesn't show up. I browsed to the appropriate file folder only to see the .java class files I created for the pasted project.

I'm beginning to think that copying the actual code I wrote in each file and pasting it into a "new project" in the version of eclipse I want to work in, is looking to be the simplest solution. Oh the wasted time....

I'm coming in late to this party, but I believe what you want to do is
import the project into the workspace. Dropping it into the workspace
filesystem isn't sufficient.

File -> Import... -> General -> Import Projects into Workspace

Hope this gets you up and going.

Perhaps using a version control tool will help you have both computers on sync.
