Is their an easy way  (using the IDE) to change the final name of the
executable file produced?

I tried just making a new project with a different name but when I tried to
compile I got out of memory errors.

Relatively simple...
-    Close the project.
-    Rename the .prj and .opn file to the new name.
-    Open de .prj file as a text file. You can do this with the IDDE through
File->Open (but do NOT open via Project->Open)
     You will find something like:
82572
P:\TMP\Test00.PRJ
Test00.OPN
novcs
Test00.DEF
1
898292412
0 0 0 0 0 "TEST.CPP" ""
0 -1 0 0 0 "S:\include\stdio.h" ""
0 -1 0 0 0 "S:\include\dos.h" ""

Rename the occurrences of Test00 (in your case the old project name) on the
2nd, 3rd and 5th line to the new name.

-    Save and close the .prj file.
-    Open the .prj file in the IDDE.

That should be all.
