While trying to add a project to a solution in Visual Studio 2010 I got this error:
Cannot add the item because the item to add it to is not a solution folder or the solution.
To make this work go to Tools -> Options. Make sure Show all settings is checked.
Select Projects and Solutions and check-off Always show solution.
Now you should be able to right-click on the solution and go to Add -> New Project.
