COM Signature

From vsshell.idl:

HRESULT IVsSolution::QueryRenameProject(
   [in] IVsProject *pProject,
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszMkOldName,
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszMkNewName,
   [in] DWORD dwReserved,
   [out] BOOL *pfRenameCanContinue

This method checks whether the project can be renamed at the time a rename action is initiated. The solution file must be writeable before any attempt to rename the project is made. If the solution is currently under source control, but is not checked out, then the user is prompted to check out the file. If the project file is under source control, then it must not be checked out. This method basically calls QueryEditSolutionFile and OnQueryRenameFile for the project file.
