    Need help to organize my project

    Hi,
    I am working on a software which has developed for long time. It is a Singe Document based MFC application. Now, we have a custom project which require everything with some additional features. These feature my boss don't want in a normal software and he wants to create another copy of the software. My question would be what is the best way to do this? I know copy and paste is the easiest way but not the best way. Also, I can use the inheritance but if I inherit my software Dialog class will all the controls comes in to the child dialog class too?

    Thanks for the help!!!

    Regards
    ABM

    Could you explain what types of the "features" are assumed?

    Yes, if you will use either the same dialog template or a template that contains the controls used by your base dialog class.

    The normal approach is to create a branch and add the new features in there. Are you not using any version control system?
