Copying projects

Hi, I'm new to Greenfoot and just trying to help my son. He has a project he is working on in school and wants to work on it at home over half term. We've installed the correct version on our home PC and he has tried copying the greenfoot.project file to a memory stick, uploaded a copy to Google drive and emailing a copy but when they are opened they are all empty. Am I right in thinking that he needs the whole folder and not just the single file? Does he need to use the export option? Thanks in advance.

Usually you have to copy the whole scenario folder (not only the 'project.greenfoot' file). Then it should work. You could try to upload it here on the site and check the include source code box, so you can download it. (If there is a compiling error right now, you can comment out everything.) If this is still not working, try to copy the class codes and send them via email. This should always work.

Thanks for the reply. My son has text me to say that he ran out of time so has copied all the source code. Hopefully he'll be able to recreate it.
